The idea of the project, under the direction of Dr. Günther Hahn,  was (with the help of "Electrical impedance tomography") to study the behavior of the lungs in micro gravitation (0~g,) (1-g), and (2-g). The experiment provided important results for research in micro gravitational environment, as well as data for human medicine on earth. The experiments were conducted aboard the Zero-G, during several parabolic flight maneuvers.

"Electrical impedance tomography (EIT) is a noninvasive type of medical imaging in which the electrical conductivity, permittivity, and impedance of a part of the body is inferred from surface electrode measurements and used to form a tomographic image of that part. Electrical conductivity varies considerably among various biological tissues (absolute EIT) or the movement of fluids and gases within tissues (difference EIT). The majority of EIT systems apply small alternating currents at a single frequency, however, some EIT systems use multiple frequencies to better differentiate between normal and suspected abnormal tissue within the same organ (multifrequency-EIT or electrical impedance spectroscopy)." wiki
