Discussion on just about any fish related topic!
The sounding rocket Texus 45 was successfully launched today from the Swedish Space Corporation’s launch facility Esrange Space Center in northern Sweden. The launch took place at 06:15 (UT) and the rocket provided 398 seconds of weightlessness for the three experiments onboard.
One of the experiments studies the behaviour of 72 fishes (cichlid fish) as they enter into weightlessness. The aim is to focus on motion sickness and the scientists try to understand why certain individuals get sick and others don’t. They especially look into how sick animals can adapt to this situation and overcome their sickness.
