Angie Bukley, interim associate vice president and vice president for research at the UT Space Institute, and adjunct professor Gilles Clément recently received the 2008 Life Sciences Book Award from the International Academy of Astronautics for their book, Artificial Gravity. The authors accepted the award in Glasgow, Scotland, on September 28. The book examines the detrimental effects of weightlessness on the human body during space travel and describes how artificial gravity can be used as a countermeasure to address the physical symptoms of extended weightlessness. The book also explores the possibility of using artificial gravity on the first manned mission to Mars.
