Where alternative procedures are known to be possiible, as in sspacecraft recovery,, for example, the optional procedures are considered. The particular qualities of the astronauts subenvironment during various space operations may be of cardinal importance to his visual performance in those instances where the environmental factors are known or may be reasonably predicted specific research has been adduced.
