Abstract:

The three European scientists astronauts of the D1 Spacelab Mission were exposed to a 1 12 hours 3G centrifuge run in supine position resulting in a linear acceleration along the x-axis 3Gx. Afterwards they experienced motion sickness symptoms which were for each of the astronauts similar to the symptoms of the Space Adaption Syndrome as experienced during their space Flight in 1985. These motion sickness symptoms lasted up to 6 hours. In otolith function tests following the centrifuge run, changes in visual vestibular interaction were observed which replicated findings obtained immediately after their space flight.
