Bats in Space!


Another sad sacrifice for our space program this week.

A bat that apparently had trouble flying instead tried to hitch a ride on the space shuttle Discovery, NASA officials said.

The animal was last seen clinging on the foam of the external tank of the space shuttle moments before the Discovery launched, officials said.

NASA officials had hoped the bat would fly away on its own, but admitted the bat probably died quickly during Discovery’s climb into orbit.

If that bat is anything like the Batdude in the DCU, he probably sneaked aboard and is busy launching new spy satellites and beating up Space-Joker right under the astronauts’ noses…
