Researchers from SRI International conducted the first-ever robotic surgery demonstration in a simulated zero-gravity environment. SRI is collaborating with researchers and surgeons from the University of Cincinnati to evaluate the benefits of robotic surgery on air and space flights.
The extreme environment experiments were performed aboard a NASA C-9 aircraft on September 25--28, 2007. Through parabolic flights, the aircraft simulated the microgravity of space and variable gravity of military critical care air transport. More info at http://www.sri.com/news/releases/0921...
