The astronauts in the test were Bob Crippen, Karol Bobko and William Thornton, who simulated space experiments, housekeeping and leisure activities in a hypobaric chamber. SMEAT provided a baseline for the in-orbit portion of biomedical experiments on Skylab. SMEAT's main objective was to evaluate equipment and procedures proposed for use during the Skylab missions.
