MED-2 Arrives at the ISS

The Miniature Exercise Device (MED-2) arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) late last week.  METECS helped develop the firmware and data interfaces for this compact device that supports both aerobic and resistive workouts.  Its testing on the ISS will determine how it needs to be adapted for a journey to Mars and beyond.  Checkout the following article on JSC Features for more information about MED-2:
