I N A P R E V I O U S paper the attempt was made to elaborate some physical and psychophysical principles which determine the behavior of the human body under conditions of partial or entire lack of weight. 35 I t was shown that subsequently to a transition of the body into the gravityfree state the field of elastic forces acting in the interior and on the surface of the body will attain a new state of equilibrium, in which the sum of all elastic forces acting on each point of the body's… Expand
