Searchers find live worms in shuttle wreckage
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Cape Canaveral, Florida-AP -- A startling discovery by space shuttle investigators. NASA officials say hundreds of worms from a science experiment aboard the space shuttle "Columbia" have been found alive in the wreckage.

The worms were found in debris in Texas several weeks ago but the containers were just recently opened by technicians sorting through the debris at Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Columbia broke apart over Texas on February first, killing seven astronauts aboard.

Columbia contained almost 60 scientific investigations.

The worms, which are about the size of the tip of a pencil, were part of an experiment testing a new synthetic nutrient solution.
