Title: Astronaut Owen Garriott lies in Lower Body Negative Pressure Device
Description:
Scientist-Astronaut Owen K. Garriott, science pilot, lies in the Lower Body 
Negative Pressure Device (LBNPD) in the work and experiments area of the 
Orbital Workshop (OWS) crew quarters of the Skylab space station cluster in 
Earth orbit. The LBNPD (M092) Experiment is to provide information
concerning  the time course of cardiovascular adaptation during flight and
to provide  inflight data for predicting the degress of orthostatic
intolerance and  impairment of physical capacity to be expected upon return
to Earth  environment. The bicycle ergometer is in the right foreground.
