Mice and Martians! Mice sent to Mars, first all-rodent space crew. I like the article's style: "The crew will have no exercise wheels, however. Their motion would interfere with the centrifugal force inside the spacecraft."

Aw shucks, they're not going all the way to Mars; they'll just be testing a simulated gravity environment in orbit for 49 days.

I demand that they install a Martian-Mice Live Cam.

See related video: Life at 25 RPM.

Personally I find one revolution per day a bit disorienting sometimes.
