=/\= fighting astronaut bone loss and near comet fly-by photos

a new study has found that "superhero-style spacesuits" could help prevent bone loss from low gravity. basically a full body spandex suit, it compresses the body enough to fight the bone loss. interesting, i will be curious to see where this goes.
