              Metepeira labyrinthea, on board the ISS during the pilot "Spiders" Mission in 2008. In an experiment funded by the National Space Biomedical Research Institute, and conducted by Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and BioServe Space Technologies, two orb spiders were launched on November 14, 2008, on the Space Shuttle Endeavor. The organisms were transferred to the International Space Station (ISS), where they remained until their habitats were returned to Earth on March 28, 2009, on Space Shuttle Discovery, as part of STS-119. The organisms lived in space for several months. They were monitored continually, with photos and video transmitted hourly to the BCM and BioServe teams on Earth. The spiders lived in space for more than two more months, until they died a natural death caused by common parasites.
