ISS brought ants for scientific experiments

The International Space Station (ISS) brought new tenants for scientific experiments - 800 ants. Scientists hope that observations of adaptation to new environmental conditions of these animals will help in the development of more sophisticated robots. unmanned cargo spacecraft supply "Cygnus" delivered to the ISS ant species Tetramorium caespitum, which are the most common ants on the planet. Despite the many new tenants cosmonauts hem. For accommodation they were allocated 8 small compartments, and their dwelling ants are arranged so that they can move freely between the compartments. add that observational data on ants in real time transmitted to Earth. This will help the students to participate in the experiment. Engineers hope that observing the behavior of Tetramorium caespitum help to create robots that can not command people to do searches.
