NASA is all set to launch 100 baby squids and 5,000 microscopic animals to the International Space Station. The creatures will travel to the ISS onboard Space X’s Falcon rocket. 

Scientists hope to learn the effect of space light on humans through this experiment as the squids have similar immune systems to that of humans. 

The experiment will have 128 baby squid’s participation along with 5,000 tardigrades, aka water bears. NASA hopes to get insights on how to make protective gears for astronauts through the results of the experiment.

Tardigrades, being an extreme animal, able to thrive in diverse environments will help study how life reacts to extreme changing conditions.
