Title: Personnel observe minnows to be sent aboard Skylab 3
John Boyd observes a bag with two "brackish water" minnows known as 
"Mummichog Minnows" which will be on board Skylab 3. The fish were added to 
the flight at the request of Scientist-Astronaut Dr. Owen K. Garriott, 
science pilot. The objective of this experiment is to show what 
disorientation the fish will experience when exposed to weightlessness. An 
aquarium of the Minnows, caught off the coast of Beaufort, North Carolina,
is  in the background.
