Most spiders spin a web and wait for prey to come to them. Instead, jumping spiders actively hunt by jumping to catch their food. What if a jumping spider was sent to the International Space Station? When it jumped, it would simply float away. Could a spider hunt in a weightless environment? This is an astonishing story of change: through the dark and cold, in spite of being weightless and isolated, this incredible spider adapted and learned to hunt. Against all odds, she survived.
