The Hybrid Ultimate Lifting Kit (HULK) has completed its second parabolic flight test at Johnson Space Center. Several new configurations of the device were tested in 30 second interval of zero-g for efficacy in a balance challenge exercise, the narrow-grip dead lift and the single point harness squat.

Efficient Exercise Regimen

Develop the most efficient exercise program for maintenance of muscle fitness.

Evidence from medical records, spaceflight operations and research findings provides the basis for identifying the most significant human risks in space exploration, including physiological and performance effects from hazards such as altered gravity, radiation, hostile/closed environments, isolation and distance. Each risk is assigned to an HRP Element (divisions of human research) to identify knowledge gaps, or the critical questions that must be answered, in order to mitigate the risk. These gaps become the focus of research conducted to reduce the likelihood and consequence of risks becoming a reality. To learn more about the Risk Identification and Mitigation process and the tasks developed to reduce those risks for the program please click on the link below the gap for more information.
