The 2suit is equipped to fasten to a stable surface. The roominess within the garment is adjustable from within. It also is lined with inner harnesses for optional use that can regulate the garment to adjust proximity of various points of the bodies to one another. A quick-disrobe function removes the garments, optionally leaving harnesses in place for stabilization to a static surface.
What about making a mouse centrifuge?
The mission was planned to carry 15 mice in low Earth orbit for five weeks. The satellite was designed to spin at approximately 32 rpm to generate centrifugal force simulating gravity that astronauts would experience on the surface of Mars.
Geezer, I am absolutley p*s*ing myself laughing on that link to youtube.
geezer, Maybe! Surely in the terms of vitrification though it does not mean turning sperm and eggs into stone! Does it? I have to be honest I was laughing more at the way they sang it then anything else....
I have to admit it does sound a bit silly now, but it was catchy at the time

At this rate it's going to be mice that get to live on Mars not us! Poor little buggers, they deserve a break!
Converting to the imperial units beloved by NASA it would seem that the centrifuge would have to have a diameter of 2 yards to produce 1g spinning at 32 RPM.
If they up the speed by 4.15%, the mice will be able to take their LPs along.
When having reached the frozen stage, the preserved material is relatively safe from further damage. However, estimates based on the accumulation of radiation-induced DNA damage during cryogenic storage have suggested a maximum storage period of 1000 years.
16⅔ revolutions per minute.
