Fruit flies become slightly superpowered in zero gravity

Fruit flies were the very first animals we sent into space, way back in 1947 — yet we're still not done analyzing what happens to them in microgravity. We've known for a while that when in "zero-gravity," flies walk more quickly than they do planetside. The only problem is that we don't know if this is due to the… »1/04/12 10:53am1/04/12 10:53am
