Abstract

Syrian golden hamsters appear to withstand gravitational stress better than white mice. When these animals were subjected to four weeks of continual centrifugation at four times the Earth's gravity (4 G's), both showed a definite decrease in body mass during the first week, then a subnormal growth rate for the remaining three weeks of exposure as compared to their controls living within the Earth's gravity (1 G).
