When astronauts return from space, they experience challenges with balance and body control due to changes in gravity. When they leave the Earth, their bodies adjust to little or no gravity. Upon return, their bodies have to re-adjust to Earth’s gravity. The agility course is used to measure balance, footwork skill and agility in response to gravity changes. After a few weeks back on Earth, their balance control returns to pre-flight condition.
