Actually, Jan, there is a tie-in to space .....
in 1998, NASA sent 200 green swordtails (Xiphophorus helleri) into space
for an experiment. It didn't go too well as the fish were totally
disorientated (kept swimming in circles).

Whose only experience with rockets is confined to a CO2 type on a
stretched wire from point "A" to point " to point "B"
short run but fun !
