Scientists to send fish on rocket ride

Stockholm: Scientists plan to launch 60 tiny fish on a zero gravity rocket ride from above the Arctic Circle on Monday to try to plumb the secrets of motion sickness. Tomas Hedqvist, project manager for Sweden's Esrange Space Centre, said the baby cichlid fish will head 260 km into the air on an 11-metre two-stage rocket, where they will experience six minutes of weightlessness.
