Musculoskeletal Outcomes from Chronic High-Speed High-Impact Resistive Exercise

countermeasures that sought to abate musculoskeletal losses (Kramer et al., 2017; Trappe et al., 2007). Those countermeasures included flywheel-based resistive exercise (Trappe et al., 2007) and high-intensity jump training (Kramer et al., 2017). Results showed that concurrent exercise reduced muscle mass and strength losses in those who received the experimental treatment as compared to bed-rested controls, yet neither countermeasure addressed bone losses, which is an important in- and postflight concern (Kramer et al, 2017; Trappe et al., 2007). However, a recent study with

Investigation of Murine T-Cells and Cancer Cells under Thermal Stressors and 2D Slow Rotating System Effects as a Testbed for Suborbital Flights

Introduction There is a large body of research ( Licato and Grimm, 1999 ; Uva et al., 2002 ; Gridley et al., 2009 ; Singh et al., 2010 ; Thiel et al., 2012 ; Hauschild et al., 2014 ; Martinez et al., 2015 ; Nickerson et al., 2016 ) showing that exposure to microgravity leads to suppressed immunity in both rodents and humans. The downregulation of the immune system is measured by a decreased number of T-cells, alterations in immune cell subsets, epigenetic regulation, slower proliferation rate, and other immunological parameters. Altered gravity has

Application of The New Shape Crushing Plate in Machine Crushing Processes

circuit crushing is designed to avoid the formation of excessive amounts of fine particles and dust and to minimize energy consumption, especially at high degrees of fineness applied in one crusher (Grzelak, [ 37 ] Kurdowski [ 38 ] ). Figure 10 Scheme of the model jaw crusher: 1a, 1b – crushing plates, 2a – fixed jaw, 2b – moving jaw, 3a, 3b front end rear toggle, 4 – pitman, 5 – eccentric shaft, a, b– width and length of the inlet slot, I – force measurement system, II – moving jaw displacement measurement system Crushing forces were measured by means of
