LAFF-A-DAY NEW YORK (AP) - How normal are you? Â· This is a question many people are asking themselves today :n a world which seems to get wackier by the hour.

Too much worrying about the Boyle Sees It By HAL BOYLE problem can be dangerous as well as confusing. After all, a fellow might'go off his rocker brooding over whether he has already gone off his rocker. Fortunately, it is fairly easy through a little self-examination to tell if you still have all or most of your marbles.

Sonny's Death Casts Doubt On Man's Survival in Space By STUART AUERBACH The Washington Post WASHINGTON - The death of a monkey has cast doubt on man's ability lo survive weightlessness during long space missions, the chief scientist for NASA's Biosatellite 3 said Wednesday. Dr. W. Ross Adey said astronauts have suffered mild forms of the same illness that killed Bonny, a misnamed male pigtailed monkey after just S-'/z days of a planned 30-day space flight last July. He urged NASA to postpone plans to fly-men ir, space for months at a time by the mid- 1970s until it conducts more weightlessness experiments with animals -- perhaps on some of the manned flights to the moon. Furthermore, Adey reveale that the President's Science Ad visory Committee reacted to the death of Bonny by making the same recommendation in soon-to-be-released report. "It's not realistic to go ahead with plans for a major space system without information on man's ability lo perform at a high'level on a continuing basis in .space,", said Â· Adey.,. ..a^pro. fessor of anatomy and physio! ogy at the University, of California at Los Angeles. Echoing the view of lunar sci- Eiilists who are leaving Ihe space program, Adey charged tiiat the engineers who dominate NASA are not concernec with scientific data -- in his case bio-medical information that he said is not presently available. Without this information, Adey said, "It is not. wise" to go ahead with orbiting space stations. There are no plans for future Biosatellite flights. Dr. John Naugle, NASA's associate administrator for space science, said "severe constrains" on the budget made space agencies officials wait for Biosatellite 3's results before planning future missions. Although (lie mission produced a vast amount of data, Bonny's illness forced NASA to bring the spaceship down 8Vi days Into the 30-day mission. Bonny died 12 hours after the Pacific Ocean landing. Bonny, in "very good health" at launch, died from a series of changes in his body function that ultimately stemmed from prolonged weightlessness, Adey said. The final cause of death was vetricular fibrillation -- the wild, uncontrolled fluttering of his heart. The first signs appeared in the early days of the flight, when scientists on the ground noted with telemetry, data unusual side-to-side "pendular" eye movements that ended abruptly wilh a jerk and Bonny tried to stop the uncomfortable reaction. This, Adey said, was due to the effects of weightlessness on the monkey's inner ear, which controls balance. He said this may have caused She "space sickness" that made Rusty Schweickart feel nauseated during Apollo 9 and the 'gastrointestinal upset" caused Frank Borman lo vomit :wice during Apollo 8. During Boriny's flight, scientists noted Â· that .the monkey vas losing more fluid than normal -- both through urine and sweat. This, Adey said, is related to shifts in blood volume and distribution and eventually to the heart's ability to pump blood. In what Adey called "the most significant finding," the pressure in the veins that return blood to Bonny's heart increased greatly soon after launch and stayed high. All this, he said, "reduced the capacity of the body to respond to stress" which in Bonny's case ' included weightlessness, restraint in the capsule, isolation and dehydration. He noted that astronauts have shown some of the same symptoms -- especially complaints of excessive sweating during space walks. Bonny lost 2.2 pounds in space -- 20 per cent of his weight. As- ronauts p usually lose 3, to 8 per cent of their weight during a mission, most. in the early days. Sonny's calcium loss -- a fac- or .noted in men in space'-- was also greater than Â· expected.
