#1 Pocket-Sized Stun Gun-Flashlight



ere is a thermoregulatory organ in the thorax of V. orientalis. It maintains at 6 °C (11 °F) higher than the rest of the body, and 9 °C (16 °F) above ambient. (Specifically it is located in the dorsal part of the thorax, inward from the meso-scutal plate of the prothorax. This organ is near the median notal suture. It is 1 millimetre (3?64 in) in diameter and butterfly-shaped. The uppermost, hindmost side abuts the base of the forewings.) The authors speculate that this heat generation is powered by the #Electric potential (above) that some of the same authors have previously discovered and investigated.
Research and experiments

The Israeli Space Agency Investigation About Hornets (ISAIAH) was a project from Tel-Aviv University initiated in 1984 to explore the effects of near-zero gravity on oriental hornets, their development, and their nest-building instincts. The experiments were funded by the Israel Space Agency with the goal of discovering ways to prevent astronauts from suffering headaches, nausea, and vomiting during the missions. The sample of 230 Oriental hornets, flight hardware, and measuring instruments were all packed onto the Space Shuttle Endeavour, mission STS-47, in 1992.

During the launch, 202 hornets died as a result of a malfunction in the water system that caused an abnormal increase in humidity. The surviving hornets lost their sense of direction, and unlike the control unit hornets, were unable to climb on the walls or stay in clusters. Instead, they stayed motionless and apart from each other. Roughly 3 to 4 days after returning to earth, the hornets started climbing on the walls again and building a nest. The surviving hornets lived for an average of 23 days, compared to an average survival of 43 day
