Otis T.

"This experiment will last long enough for, us to see just-how much a Space flyer has to sleep and work." Airman Donald G.

Periodically, his reactions and alertness will be tested. . -.- , Strughold said preliminary research by the school and! by others had shown that the 24- hour day as now accepted throughout the. world need not be followed.

Sometimes it is our hours, on and four off or four on and two off.. Maybe we can find out which is best." ··'Strughold' 'said the findings n this experiment might go even deeper. _ .
