We measured cortical and trabecular bone loss using QCT of the spine and hip in 14 crewmembers making 4‐ to 6‐month flights on the International Space Station. There was no compartment‐specific loss of bone in the spine. Cortical bone mineral loss in the hip occurred primarily by endocortical thinning.
