This experiment was made possible by the support of the Comisión Nacional de la Investigacion del Espacio (CONIE). Partial support of the CAICYT is also acknowledged. We also thank ESA and the German Federal Republic for making the Biorack and the D1 mission, respectively, possible. Dr. D. Mesland and other members of the Biorack team from ESTEC played key roles in the planning and performance of the fly experiment. Dr. Ripoll kindly corrected the manuscript.
