Astronaut Jack Lousma presents "Living and Working Aboard Skylab, America's First Space Station ".  Skylab was America's first Space station that flew long duration spaceflights.  Three separate crews visited it with Apollo capsules for one, two and three months during 1973-74.  It housed 60 experiments in science and technology studying the Sun, Earth's resources, medical effects of long-term zero gravity, astronomy and more.  skylab returned volumes of ne scientific findings.  Jack will explore how they learned to construct a permanent station, the human body's adaption to extended durations in zero gravity conditions and what NASA learned about making longer duration flights practicable.
