File PhotoWhile bone loss is a natural phenomena as human bodies age, astronauts on long-duration flights tend to have a permanent loss of bone density, finds a study. They followed 17 astronauts before and after spaceflight from 2015 to understand whether bone recovers after `long-duration` spaceflight. "We found that weight-bearing bones only partially recovered in most astronauts one year after spaceflight. This suggests the permanent bone loss due to spaceflight is about the same as a decade worth of age-related bone loss on Earth," said lead author Dr Leigh Gabel, Assistant Professor in kinesiology at the varsity. There is quite a variety of responses among astronauts when they return to Earth," added Dr. Steven Boyd, director of the McCaig Institute for Bone and Joint Health at the varsity.
