The article describes the NASA/Wyle/University of Texas Medical Branch partnership and use of the Wyle Laboratories-built short-radius centrifuge to conduct physiological studies aimed at mitigating the effects of microgravity during long-duration space missions. The cover image shows the author preparing for a 17.3 rpm "spin" on the centrifuge. NASA issued a press release on this subject.

(from byline): "NASA's new leader comes aboard with a deceptively big budget for science. But size is no substitution for a healthy portfolio. Can Michael Griffin remake the agency's human space flight program without eviscerating research?"
