ClassGraphic 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.
