The Space Junk Podcast - Space Medicine with Vi Tran

The Space Junk Podcast: space medicine and roads less traveled - with SpaceAustralia.com's very own, Vi Tran


In this episode, I talk to Vi Tran, a Space Medicine student at Adelaide University. Vi’s Honours project analyses data from the Artificial Gravity Bed Rest study at the European Space Agency, with a focus on the gluteal muscles. In essence, Vi studies what might happen to butts in Space, which makes this episode, recorded over Zoom, a literal Booty Call. Outside of her research, Vi has worked with the Flying Doctor service in Broome, WA, and enjoys long-distance running. Our discussion delves into philosophy, and how she thinks about finding duty and purpose while pursuing an unconventional career path.
