The impact of gravity changes on our body


Gravity is a phenomenon that we all know. It’s so familiar that we don’t even remember that it is here. But without this gravity, our cells, our perception and all our body in general would not be as efficient. This is because evolution created a life adapted to gravity. In this video, Loïck Behr explores the consequences of gravity changes.


Loïck Behr is a student in the Cell Physics Master at the University of Strasbourg, France.
