Development studies of Aurelia (jellyfish) ephyrae which developed during the SLS-1 mission.


Aurelia polyps (scyphistomae) and ephyrae were exposed to microgravity for nine days aboard the space shuttle during the SLS-1 mission. During strobilation, polyps segment transversely and each segment develops into an ephyra. Polyps were induced to strobilate at 28 degrees C, using iodine or thyroxine, at L(Launch)-48h, L-24h, and L+8h. Ephyrae developed… (More)
