assage from"Life Without Gravity" by Robert Zimmerman

In space, the much weaker gravity makes the human body change in many unexpected ways. In microgravity, your blood is rerouted, flowing from the legs, which become thin and sticklike, to the head, which swells up. The extra liquid in your head also makes you feel like you're hanging upside down or have a studded-up nose.

Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the selection?
