|Data Set Name||Newt Larvae Endolymphatic Sac, R+5|
|Data Set Description||
This graph depicts the presence of externally visible stones in the endolymphatic sac of newt larvae, on larvae fixed the fifth day after recovery (R+3).
Examination of 121 flight and ground control larvae fixed and embedded on days R+0, R+3 and R+5 reveals that the appearance of otoconia in the endolymphatic sac was significantly accelerated in the larvae reared in microgravity. At R+5, 70% of flight and 21% of ground control larvae had visible stones.
