Abstract : The basic requirement for mice in a sealed atmosphere were determined preliminary to the design of small suitable mice containers for placement in an orbital rocket. The food, water, oxygen, and soda-lime consumption of a mouse was determined for resting and active stages for periods of 1 hr to 2 wk. The results suggested that a mouse could live fairly comfortably in a sealed compartment for a 30-day period.
