""  MARS MICE by Karen Miller
 
In 2006 a group of mice-astronauts will orbit Earth inside a spinning spacecraft.
Their mission: to learn what its like to live on Mars.

The mice will be exposed to Mars-gravity for about five weeks. Then, says Wooster, they'll return to Earth alive and well. The mice will descend by parachute and land near Woomera, Australia, inside a small capsule reminiscent of NASA's old Apollo capsules.""

Low gravity leads to a change in bones. Bones need pressure to grow or the reverse, it would either make us taller or shorter.

Your heart would weaken from ease as with other muscles.
