Watch Mice on the ISS Perform Acrobatics #ISS #SpaceMice
Watching the grainy black and white footage looks a lot like the start of a Sci-Fi movie! Via C-Net:
NASA scientists have published the first detailed study of mice behavior in microgravity — and turns out they’re adaptable little critters.
Within seven to 10 days after launching, younger mice participating in ISS experiments began to engage in a notable and extremely GIF-worthy behavior not seen in their Earth-like brethren — group circling that looks like they’re running around a track.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
