dc.description.abstract The reason that this experiment will be conducted is to see the growth of a fish embryo in microgravity. Our basic question is “How will microgravity affect the early growth of an organism?”. The reason that it will be conducted in microgravity is because if we ever colonize space we will need to know the effects of low gravity on a developing human embryo. This is vital because colonization of low gravity areas will require new people to be born and if microgravity leads to birth defects then we need to know before hand. Birth defects from microgravity are a real possibility. Things like the formation of the skeleton is vital for all vertebrate creatures that will one day be born and live in space. en_US
