Feed the Animals

NASA was considering sending canaries into space to study them under zero gravity. The project was scrapped when someone realized that in spite of having sufficient water supplies, they could die of dehydration within a few hours. Why?


  1. Because birds do not have any muscles in their oesophugus, so they wouldn't be able to consume any of the water without the necessary gravity to move it into their stomachs.

  2. they can't fly in the space. So they can't reach to the water and can't feed themselves.
