Evolution without gravity

  1. Jun 1, 2008 #1
    I heard a long time ago (im 18, so perhaps "a long time ago" lacks perspective, I guess I was 12 or something at the time) about an experiment that would have a colony of common fruit flies or mayflies onboard the space station to see how they evolved in a (as good as) zero gravity environment. This recently popped up again in my mind and I would like to know how it is going / how it went, perhaps if anyone know of this or any similar experiment they could redirect me?
