Long duration space flight poses a number of important challenges to human physiological systems. Dr. Joanne Lupton examines how nutrition and exercise can be used as countermeasures to some of the more critical risks of living and working in microgravity, and emphasizes the importance of optimal nutrition and physical fitness to health, both in space and on Earth.
