Nasa’s Ants Successfully tunnel in Microgravity

AntWorks is based on a 2003 NASA Space Shuttle experiment to study life in space and how ants successfully tunnel in microgravity. The ant farm is created using AntWorks Gel and is complete with nutrients to promote healthy growth in the new colony.

The beauty of the display comes in when the ants create intricate tunnels and these are light up at night illuminated by LED. The gel and illuminator can be bought at the Antworks website.

I haven’t met anyone who particularly likes ants. But now that you’ve seen this LED illuminated ant farm, do you think differently?
