  • Rodents represent one of the most important animal models in space biology experiments. Compared to other animals, the mice could better adapt to weightless conditions in space. Consequently, more and more researchers focus on the study of space mice flight payload. In the capsule, the mice would undergo a series of magical changes in the physiological behavior, the bone, and the nervous system. The experiments have shown that the research about these changes might contribute to the diagnostic of astronauts health, such as muscle atrophy. It is reported that many space mice experiments have been carried out abroad. However, China has not yet had sufficient research in this field. In order to address the problem, a large number of relevant literature were surveyed in this work. The development of various mice flight payloads and the content of the experiment were summarized in this paper. The specific contents are as follows. Firstly, the technology of mice culture on the ground was introduced, which gives a reference for the design of the flight payload. Then, five kinds of existing flight payloads abroad were discussed. Finally, the proposal for the development of domestic mice flight payload was proposed.
