Abstract
A serious issue with human space exploration is the inevitable decay of muscle tissue and bone density due to the lack of gravity. We propose the design and testing of a prototype zero-gravity ferromagnetic suit that mimics Earth’s gravitational pull on the whole body. Our initial proof of concept is composed of a ferro-magnetic suit built from scratch (from custom woven ferro-mag thread, etc), and a electro-permanent magnetic base.
