Astronauts in space are faced with a number of physiological changes, which are an excellent parallel for studying problems that affect ageing and sedentary populations here on Earth.

Canada’s participation in the International Space Station allows our scientists access to the unique environment aboard the orbiting laboratory. Learn more about Canadian science on the Station, which is helping to make space travel safer and benefit Canadians.
