From Chip Taylor's Monarch Watch:
"If all goes according to plan, the insects will eat, grow and go through metamorphosis to emerge as adult butterflies in 17 days while in low Earth orbit." In the video, he explains more about the experiment.

VIDEO: VIEW THE RESULT! @ Twitter/NASA. Or: HERE.

PERSONAL: This story especially caught my eye... As a child, I used to raise Monarchs by placing them in a well-ventilated silk box... In fact, they were my alarm clock, as I'd awaken to the gentle "flutter' of wings; indicating that they were ready to be freed...

To me, this experiment means bees, and that means world crops...
(Thinking outside the box ;) ..A very interesting evolution of the possible.
