As you know Commander Chris Hadfield
is aboard the International Space Centre.
He is orbiting the Earth.
Lady Bug Note Generators
…in 1999 we four fine ladybirds were sent
into space in NASA’s space shuttle.
We were sent out there with a picnic of our favourite food.
Do you know what that is?
Yes you are correct,
it is greenfly otherwise known as aphids.
We were sent to outer space
because there is zero-gravity there
Scientists wanted to study how to aphids
could escape from their predators
without being able to jump using gravity.
On Earth we climb up a stalk to capture greenfly.
The greenfly fall off of the plant using gravity to escape.
With zero gravity, the greenfly couldn’t escape.
We had a good trip.
We feasted on greenfly in the zero gravity.
So in answer to the question, both Chris Hadfield
and ladybirds have been in space.
We got this information about
ladybirds in space from
