Artificial Gravity receives 2008 Life Science Book Award
Date:7/28/2008

The Springer book Artificial Gravity, edited by Gilles Clment and Angie Bukley, has received the 2008 Life Science Book Award from the International Academy of Astronautics. This award is given annually to recognize excellence in publication by a member of the Academy in the fields related to life science. The award will be presented at the Academy Day Honor Night on 28 September 2008 in Glasgow, Scotland.

Artificial Gravity reviews the principle and rationale for using artificial gravity during space missions, and describes the current options proposed, including a short-radius centrifuge contained within a spacecraft. In the book, experts provide recommendations on the research needed to assess whether or not short-radius centrifuge workouts can help limit deconditioning of physiological systems.

Gilles Clment said, "I find great satisfaction in knowing that this book is acknowledged by the astronautic community. Angie and I compiled this book during our stay at Ohio University, with contributions from the members of the ESA Topical Team on Artificial Gravity and invited participants. This award is for all the contributors to this project."
