      For example, studies of muscle wasting and bone weakening in rodents help us understand human disease because microgravity accelerates disease progression. In addition, microgravity research has proven advantageous for producing higher-quality protein crystals for structure-based drug design and testing of new drugs in animal models of disease. All life forms have evolved under the constant force of gravity on Earth and developed ways to counterbalance acceleration load. In space, shear forces, buoyance-driven convection, and hydrostatic pressure are nullified or strongly reduced. When subjected to microgravity in space, the equilibrium between cell architecture and the external force is disturbed, resulting in changes at the.
