Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The results of a 2-year lasting ESA Topical Team on Fundamental Physics on the International Space Station are presented. The report starts with a short review about the status of fundamental physics and the corresponding theoretical questions and experimental quests. In a further step, the special conditions on the International Space Station (ISS) are related to the experimental requirements. In a last step, experiments are presented which are physically interesting and take essential advantage of the conditions on ISS.
