Abstract

Bone is an important tissue for space specialists since it undergoes significant changes under microgravity conditions and its healing is slow. Bone has been considered a special tissue since the very inception of medical theories. In Acragas, according to Empedocles (493–432 BC), bone was made of two parts earth, two parts water and four parts fire, thus marking the beginning of quantitative chemistry.
