Great Moments in Bat Science

Space Shuttle Discovery was launched this Sunday. If you look at a picture of liftoff, there appears to be something on the side of the external fuel tank.


Upon closer inspection, we find the most adventurous bat in the history of bats.


All photo evidence so far indicates that he clung on during liftoff and the ascent above the Kennedy Space Center. I like to think he sacrificed himself for the advancement of bat science.
