Abstract Drosophila melanogaster flies climb up the sides of their vial after having been submitted to a mechanical stimulation; that ability is impaired at older ages. The climbing activity (CLI) of flies kept at various gravity levels (1, 3 and 5 g) has been measured throughout life, in cross-sectional studies. Hypergravity had no effect on CLI at young age, but older flies kept in hypergravity displayed lower scores than flies kept at 1 g. Results are discussed in relation with the hypothesis of increased aging rate in hypergravity.
