Submission + - Space Fish: ISS Aquatic Habitat Delivered by HTV-3 (

astroengine writes: "Yes, it's the moment we've all (secretly) been waiting for: Fish In Space! But before you go getting too excited and start asking the big questions — like: if there's a bubble in a microgravity aquarium, what happens if the fish falls into it? Let's ponder that for a minute... — it's worth pointing out that the fish aren't actually in space right now (their habitat has just been delivered to the space station by the unmanned Japanese H-II Transfer Vehicle "Kounotori 3") and this fishy experiment isn't just to see how fish enjoy swimming upside down, there's some serious science behind it."
