Four Air Force airmen ended a 42-day space cabin experiment today at the Brooks AFB Aerospace School of Medicine. Thirty days of the experiment were spent in a pure oxygen atmosphere. Each of the airmen was presented with a certificate of appreciation and two photographs of the late President John F. Kennedy, who dedicated the school the day before he was assassinated in Dallas.
