Can Zero Gravity Kill Cancer Cells?

Australian researchers are gearing up to send cancer cells to outer space, following promising study results. Joshua Chou, a biomedical engineering researcher at the University of Technology Sydney, conducted a study to investigate the potential effects of zero gravity on cancer cells. He explained, “We took four different types of cancer cells from different parts of the body — breast, ovary, lungs and nose — and put them in a microgravity condition. And what we found was that in 24 hours, 80% to 90% of these cancer cells actually died.”  Read more.....
