Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.
Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?
With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.
Today, we bring you Matthew Inman’s run-down of the animals that have been shot off into space for science. Best-known as creator of webcomic The Oatmeal, Inman presented this important lesson at W00tstock 6.0, a night of geekery and music hosted in San Diego, California, this past July.
