The Bat on the Space Shuttle!

There was a bat with a broken wing stuck on the Space Shuttle when it blasted off into space!

While scientists think he held on for as long as his little bat wings could hold until he died, the space bat likely set speed and altitude records for his species. They will forever call him the Batronaut. RIP you crazy bat.
