Abstract : A 'Chronic Experiment' was begun on 180 dogs (138 males and 42 bitches) in order to investigate and provide an experimental basis for permissible radiation dosage during long space flights. The experiment was designed for several years of gamma radiation. The report sets forth some of the results obtained from observations made of the animals during two years of the experiment. Also, results of medical examinations of the crew members of Soyuz 3, 4, and 5 are summarized.
