Time-lapse Spider in space: „Esmeralda the spider isn't wasting away from homesickness in space, in fact she's doubled in size. She's one of two golden silk orb-weaver spiders (Nephila clavipes) that was recently sent to the International Space Station (ISS) on NASA's last shuttle mission to space, as part of a national education project in the US. One of the experiments, designed by Stefanie Countryman and her team at BioServe Space Technologies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, involves comparing spider behaviour in space and on Earth. Students in elementary and middle schools across the country are watching videos like this one of the spiders spinning webs in near-weighlessness and looking for differences from the same set-up in their classrooms.“

YouTube - Solarnauts (Part 1 of 3): „An unsold pilot for a proposed 1967 sci-fi actioner out of the UK. Eye-popping costumes and sets belie an overall cheesy but charming tone. Cast of familiar but un-nameable Brit character actors, only Bond-Girl Martine Beswick stands out. Beware of LOGIK! You have been warned...“
