Nefertiti the jumping spider
The Guardian in the U.K. used my jumping spider photo to illustrate a story about Nefertiti, the spider which traveled to the International Space Station. It's an interesting story and it made me a little sad and also proud for the spider. From the story: Kelly Carnes of the Smithsonian told the LA Times: "The unexpected loss of this special animal who inspired so many imaginations will be felt throughout the museum community … The body of Nefertiti will be added to the museum's collection of specimens where she will continue to contribute to our understanding of spiders."
