They don't do well in zero G. Many plants can't survive in space either though putting plants in a centrifuge helps. Can you imagine if you're a plant and you don't know which way your roots are supposed to grow due to the absence of gravity, that would suxor!

hey any federal employee will tell you that there are a lot better ways to waste money. just this past week our shop bought a part for a 30 year old radio for 3500 bucks when a brand new radio costs 1800 bucks. welcome to the world of WTF!!!!

Well, I think these studies should be done... a little later... when space travel is more a common thing. You know, maybe when the actual space elevator is done...?

Seriously, for now it such trivial data that the NASA is wasting money on this.

I think you mean "wasting." This is exactly why the government is spending this money: to encourage education. Maybe if cool learning experiences like this interest kids more in school and learning, we'll have fewer hopelessly ignorant people in the world.

This is just stupid. It's a feel-good propaganda thing for schools. Big giant waste of money.

They should just give it up. We're never gonna live in space.
Star Trek is a TV show. There are no Vulcans.

You sir, are a giant arse. They probably didn't send butterflies on their own shuttle, it was probably a side project on a already schedueled mission. That's how they do these things.

Star Trek is NOT a TV show, its real. And the Vulcans, are going to mind-meld you and make you think you're a giant arse. Which you are.

I SAID GOOD DAY SIR!
