Re: Strong gravity

In the old book "Habitable Planets for Man" they discuss G-force stress tests and hypothesize that 1.5Gs is the maximum a human could tolerate, but that it would have negative effects because the heart would have to work harder for one thing. Alos, falling could be potentially fatal because the higher acceleration under higher gravity means you'd hit the ground with more speed and more force. I can dig out the book if you want some specifics.
