CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Hundreds of worms from a science experiment aboard the space shuttle Columbia have been found alive in the wreckage, NASA said Wednesday.

The worms, known as C. elegans, were found in debris in Texas several weeks ago. Technicians sorting through the debris at Kennedy Space Center in Florida didn't open the containers of worms and dead moss cells until this week.

but were these normal worms?

I mean they wanted to take them out to space, to see the worms reaction in space? investigate? or those worms were inyected with something? What kind of experiment? It doesn´t say anything in the article about it...

they're just worms with teeth around their mouths, and are very sensitive to vibrations. They do grow to be about 30' long though....
(kidding of course) A little tremors humor there....

Should have made the cockpit out of the same stuff as the worm containers....
