World's first long-term habitation of mice on the International Space Station in a gravitational environment simulating the Moon! -- A first step toward expanding human activities into deep space.(July 1, 2019)

As a technical demonstration for international space exploration toward the Moon and the Mars, six wild-type mice were reared for 32 days from May 5 to June 5 of 2019 in a low-gravity environment simulating that on the Moon (about one sixth of the Earth's gravity) and were all returned alive to the Earth on the 17th operational vehicle of the Dragon spacecraft (SpX-17).
