1973.09.18 - Fish and embryo to be returned to JSC by Skylab 3.


Fish and embryo that were part of a Skylab science demonstration would be returned to JSC by Skylab 3, provided that one or more of the fish were still alive at the time of deactivation.

Upon return to the recovery ship, the fish would be photographed and observed to determine any reaction to the one-g environment. They would then be returned to JSC for comparison with the backup fish and embryo which were being held in the JSC laboratory. Later histological observations and examinations of their vestibular apparatus would be performed to determine any changes between the two groups.
