NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Expedition 36 flight engineer, equipped with a bungee harness, exercises on the Combined Operational Load Bearing External Resistance Treadmill (COLBERT) in the Tranquility node of the International Space Station. Its use is one of the ways astronauts and cosmonauts maintain muscle mass and bone density in a zero-gravity environment.
