This week's Space to Ground includes a question I posed via Twitter — what experiments conducted in microgravity have led to commercial products on the market?
If the question was selected, I guessed they might talk about Prolia by Amgen, and I guessed right.
In July 2013, I wrote about five medical discoveries in microgravity that were already on the market or in clinical trials.
One is Prolia, which helps women with osteoporosis.
Recently I saw this Prolia ad on television, featuring Blythe Danner.

No mention of space, alas, but it was nice to see an actual “Made in Space” product on the market.
