Russian cosmonauts have installed an antenna on the International Space Station to help a team of scientists track animals. The operation was part of a German-led project known as Icarus, short for International Cooperation for Animal Research Using Space. The project will start tracking blackbirds and turtle doves outfitted with GPS tags, the Associated Press reports, then move on to other songbirds, fruit bats and larger wildlife, including gazelle and elephants.
