Fact Hunters: Pigeons, goldfish & space

Georgina Morton
Incredibly pigeons are being trained by a special unit of the Chinese People's Liberation Army in the central city of Chengdu. They are said to be the most practical and effective short and medium distance tool for communications if there is electromagnetic interference or a collapse in their signals!

Amazingly the world's oldest captive goldfish died peacefully in his bowl, 43 years after he was won as a prize at a funfair!

If you were to take off your space suit whilst in space some unpleasant things would happen:

· You would lose consciousness because there is no oxygen. This could occur in as little as 15 seconds.
· You would face extreme changes in temperature
· You would be exposed to various types of radiation

Did you know that Angler Fish are bony fish named for the way they hunt their prey. A fleshy growth from the fish's head (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure for their prey. This is considered angling.
