    Background: Intensified work in gravity - force studies for X-15 astronauts and other aviation projects are continuing at the Aviation Acceleration Labs, Naval Air Development Centre, Johnsville, Pennsylvania.

    Laboratories contain a centrifuge with a gondola placed at the end of a steel arm which whirls it at controlled speeds. The gondola houses instrumented controls with which the astronauts are able to adjust forces acting upon the capsule.
