In bed
Erin Peterson has spent three months lying in bed to simulate the physical effects of long-duration space flight, and she gets out of bed today. She's been blogging.

My wife spent about three months in bed, too, when she was pregnant. She even had simulated free fall sickness.

Hmm, perhaps the blogging-pajamas relationship goes two ways!

You know, one part of me runs away screaming from the thought of being stuck in a bed for 3 months, certainly if I'm otherwise healthy enough to acquire a bad case of cabin fever.

But. But, I could also feel motivated by fantasies of actually being able to get out into space. I know it wouldn't be me personally, but thinking that the data acquired by the participation of "ordinary people" gives Jane Doe and folks like me a leg up into orbit... hmmm, yeah!

Of course, that's a long way from actually agreeing to be in such a study, or, for that matter, actually getting to travel to space.
