Video : Space Spiders Captured on Film!

Yes, space spiders. Two golden orb spiders, Gladys and Esmerelda, boarded the ISS as cargo from the last shuttle mission to “test” how spiders might behave differently in microgravity. Golden orb spiders are different in the fact that when on Earth they spin semi-circular webs. No so with these two brave spidernauts! They spin fully circular webs in space. I have embedded the time lapse below, but you can find tons more real-time video at BioServe Space Technologies' YouTube channel.
