Fun Fact:

Astronaut John Glenn takes Sea-Monkey eggs into space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery. After returning to Earth, they were hatched eight weeks later, apparently unaffected by their voyage. Unfortunately, earlier experiments with Sea-Monkey eggs that traveled to the Moon and back were not so successful, as the higher level of cosmic rays adversely affected the eggs with only 10% surviving to adulthood.
