Systolic and diastolic blood pressure increased during space flight and were highest when gravity reached its peak during entry and at touchdown. Systolic blood pressure decreased significantly when the astronauts first stood up from their seats after landing. Heart rate increased at the time of peak gravity during entry and at touchdown, and it rose even higher when the astronauts first stood up. The increase in heart rate varied, but was generally substantial.
