Russian Animal Astronauts Return to Earth - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

A Russian space capsule containing mice, sand eels, geckos, gerbils, snails, fish and plants returned to Earth after a month-long mission in space. The Bion-M craft performed a parachute-assisted landing on a field in the Orenberg region, 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) southeast of Moscow on Monday (May 20). The capsule containing animals, attached to a Soyuz rocket, was blasted into space from Kazakhstan in April 19 with an aim of studying the effects of microgravity on animals' bodies.
