Research Technology

April 16, 2011

Zenon’s parents are on the Space Stay because they are doing research. The research they are doing on bone marrow density can only be done in space because they need a lab with a weightless chamber. Here on Earth, weightless chambers are called spaces of zero gravity. Zero gravity training is used most often to train astronauts, since our idea of space is one of zero gravity. It is ironic that Zenon is able to walk around and live normally when zero gravity is the norm in space. The cause of this might be that sometime between 2011-2049 we found a way to displace zero gravity and make space a place with gravity. It would be the only way that Zenon could live the way she does in the movie. Since her parents need a weightless chamber, the ability to harness zero gravity in a confined space has also been discovered.
