Title: How do astronauts keep prevent every bone from losing mass?
Post by: Lewis Thomson on 14/01/2022 10:45:38
Donald has sent us a curious question that needs answering

"Astronauts lose bone mass in the weightless of space and a regiment has been designed to minimize that. The bone loss is mainly in the weight supporting bones. So, what prevents the non-weight supporting bones like the skull, fingers and middle ear bones from this problem?"

Nothing as far as I know? Bones are bones.

Or?
