WHAT’S YOUR SPACE HEIGHT?
Problem: How can I find my space height?
So, how tall are you? That seems like a fairly easy question to answer. However, did you know our height changes throughout the day? In fact, our height changes from morning to night. It really has very little to do with the sun and moon, though. Instead, our height becomes less – yes, we shrink – as the day goes on because gravity compresses our bodies. When we lie down at night, gravity no longer pulls in a direction to make us shorter so our bodies stretch and we return to our taller height again. Imagine what happens to astronauts who don’t experience the effect of gravity for months at a time! That’s right; they grow taller. In fact, NASA Astronaut and MissionX ambassador Kate Rubins grew from her “Earth height” of 171 cm to her “space height” of 174.4 cm.
Maybe I should go to space to gain a little height? Add on the difference of Kate’s height to your own height and write your space height as a comment below…
Alternatively, use this link to the Mission X website and use their conversion chart…
