In aerospace age, many studies have been in progress about the equilibrium and spatial orientation under weightless conditions. This article focused on explaining vestibular anatomy and physiology. Furthermore, we tried to put the accent on introducing the role of vestibular system that is responsible for equilibrium of the body in spatial orientation.
