And Now: Weightless Cats [VIDEO]

These cats are NOT IMPRESSED.

This is a clip from 1947 footage of work undertaken by the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories. Apparently, this Very Important Space Learning included finding out what happens to cats in space. And now—now we know. Cats do not handle themselves well in weightlessness. Also, no kitties were harmed in the making of this video. Well, except for maybe their pride.

Bonus: Here is another one from the vomit comet in the ’80s.

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
