Abstract : The four Spacelab 1 payload crew members, as experimental subjects, were exposed to a variety of motion sickness tests. Contrary to expectation, the crew member who was most susceptible to these tests was the least susceptible to these tests. On the third day after returning from the mission, one of the preflight tests (KC 135) was repeated, and all of the crew members were found to be non-susceptible. Statements of generalities will have to wait for the accumulation of more experimental subjects.
