After 197 Days In Zero Gravity, Astronaut Struggles To Walk

The International Space Station astronauts have to face challenges, quite different ones on the Earth. Walking is just one of them!

Astronaut A.J. Feustel recently posted a video on Twitter showing the effects of being in zero gravity for extended period. Feustel spent about 197 days in the International Space Station and returned to earth with SoyuzMS09. 

The human body is designed to function normally under the influence of gravity. The astronauts feel as if their legs are made of jelly. It's similar to a toddler trying to walk for the first time.
