SpaceX is set to launch a capsuled filled with supplies and science experiments to the International Space Station, including 20 lab mice.
Florida State University researcher Michael Delp wants to solve some biological problems astronauts face in space. To do that, he’s sending the group of mice to the station. For nearly a month, the mice will live in micro-gravity.
“The research is really geared to address several biomedical issues that face astronauts with long-duration space flight,” said Delp.
