Lightworlder: Tending to the tall and skinny, yes. Not, however, particularly delicate, both since the problem of microgravity-induced bone and muscle degeneration has long since had the shit scienced out of it, and because while gravity may be greatly lessened Up There, inertia is still exactly the same.
I thought it seemed a bit odd that the beltapes of Quantum Vibe bucked the “thin” trend by looking like hairless gorillas and had considerable lifting strength but still had problems in “high” gravity.
While I gave my bioprinted parahumans titanium-reinforced skeletons that osteoclasts can’t touch.
I went for nanocyte-built carbon-lattice sheathing, myself… 🙂
Well, I wasn’t sure how carbon-based reinforcement would interact with biology. Titanium is biologically non-reactive.
Oh, sure. (That wasn’t intended as a criticism, just a contrast between methods suited for bioprinting and those which are intended to grow in situ; lots of C in the body already, but it’s tricky to find a good way to get people to eat Ti 🙂 I presume there was science done to make sure the outer layers were suitably biocompatible.)
