The Effects of Gravity on a Developing Fetus

The planet earth has provided the perfect haven for all the organisms that inhabit it. Through evolution every living thing we know of and all that are unknown have prospered. Each species has developed its own unique way of adapting to planet earth. Though not only did they adapt to survive but to survive better. There have been many reasons for why organisms have evolved. One variable that has remained constant in evolution has been gravity. From the beginning of time gravity has remained the same. This means that every organism that has been created on earth has been succumbed to the effects of gravity. From birth and development to deterioration and death, gravity is taken into effect every step of the way. Therefore we humans are also developed under gravity. The absence of gravity could perhaps be fatal. Though as adults, humans and other organisms can experience zero-G with a less than lethal outcome.

As we explore our universe, we humans begin to drift away for planet earth and our curiosity leads us into the depths of outer space. Not only does the vastness of space intrigue us among other things, but also so does its weightlessness. A life without gravity seems like interesting and exciting thought. However there are more than weightless worries. Gravity is a force that pulls together all matter (which is anything you can physically touch). The more matter, the more gravity, so things that have a lot of matter such as planets and moons and stars pull more strongly (northwestern). It not only affects you and the environment around you but also ones internal organs and their functions. Gravity is essential to human functioning, without it the weightlessness destroys muscle and deteriorates bone and vascular density.
