Am I the only one who ever thinks about countering g-forces by allowing a pilot to be submersed in liquid instead with neutral boyancy. This would completely eliminate passing out from g-forces at any acceleration factor.
Though of course it would be complicated so I understand why it isnt done. You would need a complicated system to maintain pressure in the tank so it wont fluctuate quickly. But since g-forces are usually transient if done correctly decompression might not be a big issue
@Nyoei The medium matters more than you think. The reason your brain pushes towards the back of your skull is specifically because you are supported in a chair, which exhibits a counter force.
Consider a person in a falling elevator, they expiernce weightlessness and their internal organs behave as if weightless as well. Yet they are accelerating at 1G. Meanwhile someone on the surface of the earth expiernes their internal organs being "crushed" by that same 1G force, although that crushing is well within tolerance.
