German Scientists Launch Fish into Space

FishesGerman researchers on Thursday launched a rocket carrying 72 small fish on a brief space flight to study motion sickness.

The cichlids were in an unmanned rocket that blasted off from a launch pad in northern Sweden, said Professor Reinhard Hilbig, who was in charge of the project.

The thumbnail-sized fish were filmed as they swam around weightlessly in small aquariums during the 10-minute space flight.

Hilbig said the fish landed safely and appeared to be in good condition.

"They were very happy, I think they want to have another flight," he said.
