Without gravity, the evolution of the body is completely modified, and the human being has to learn again how to move. I worked on different ways to facilitate body evolution in weightlessness, from anecdotes and realities told by professional astronauts, to the body and its surroundings.
During my researches, I encounter the notion of « ultimate relaxation position » developed by Story Musgrave, American astronaut, who shared his own experience with weightlessness and particularly about the inherent positions only possible in this state. The ultimate relaxation position is only possible when all muscles are completely relaxed and no exterior force applied on the body. In this situation, one does not feel his own body in surrounding space anymore.
