What G Force do astronauts experience during a rocket launch?
Astronauts normally experience a maximum g-force of around 3gs during a rocket launch. This is equivalent to three times the force of gravity humans are normally exposed to when on Earth but is survivable for the passengers.
Astronauts float around in space because there is no gravity in space. Everyone knows that the farther you get from Earth, the less the gravitational force is. Well, astronauts are so far from the Earth that gravity is so small. Because there is no air in space.
Fighter pilots can handle greater head-to-toe G forces—up to 8 or 9 G’s—and for longer periods by wearing anti-G suits. These specialized outfits use air bladders to constrict the legs and abdomen during high G’s to keep blood in the upper body.
