Abstract:

The method is distinguished by the fact that as sensitive elements there are used solid inert masses placed in a liquid or gaseous medium and located inside a free flying celestial body and the residual weight of these bodies not having complete dynamic weightlessness is equalized by a system of spring suspension and the shifting of the masses is fixed by an optical method on a photographic film or converted into an electrical signal.
