Re: Simple gravity question

Human beings can withstand, for short periods, 4-6G of acceleration without training or mechanical assistance. For prolonged periods? I don't think anyone knows. It probably isn't more than 2G. It doesn't matter how good of shape you are, you're not carrying ~200 pounds of extra weight around all the time without problems. US soldiers, fully loaded, carry ~75 pounds of gear max, meaning the the practical limit might be as low as 1.25-1.5G.
