It is possible to reduce microacceleration level in the indoor environment of space laboratory by the usage of electric jet engine. There is described the efficiency of electric jet engine for five different projects of space laboratories. There are introduced some recommendations for development of the engine with optimal characteristics to reduce microacceleration level.
