Description:

Beyond the bounds of the Earth's atmosphere, two golden orb spiders are living and flourishing on the International Space Station. Each one lives in separate habitat chambers, and they have a bountiful supply of fruit flies. Each chamber contains cameras and lighting systems, and visitors can use this site from BioEd Online to peer into their world up above. BioEd Online also provides an amazing teachers guide here for educators, along with a dozen or so archived spider videos. Educators take also take advantage of the PowerPoint presentations, and a collection of links to pamphlets on the operation of rockets and microgravity.
