Heard on Campus: Margaret Rhea Seddon at the Forum

April 30, 2004

"I think one of the most interesting things that we learn from taking people into space is that the human body begins to adapt as soon as you get into space. It adapts to an environment that it's never seen before in its evolutionary history, and isn't it amazing that we developed in a gravity field and yet our body figures out how to change to be more efficient in the absence of gravity."
-- Margaret Rhea Seddon, assistant chief medical officer for Vanderbilt Medical Group and former astronaut, speaking today (April 30) on "A Woman Astronaut's Experience in Space Research" at the Penn State Forum on the University Park campus.
