Abstract : Conclusions: Flights of experimental animals in nearearth space on satellite spaceships showed an absence, during and after flight, of pathological changes in system of blood circulation and breathing. Functional shifts of basic physiologic functions of animals turned out to be the most expressed during entry of ship into orbit and descent of it to earth. In period of weightlessness, the indices of cardiovascular system for majority of dogs already in the 2-3rd turns were lowered to initial magnitudes. In state of weightlessness, both curtailing and quickening of breathing was noted. (Author)
