Seems this is not the first time that a bat has attempted to enter orbit either....Wonder what attracts them to the SRB's?

Wonder what attracts them to the SRB's?

Its the smell of the resin used to stick the foam on.

There you've got it straight from the "horsehoes" bats mouth.

Its a bit like why cats always walk in newly laid concrete. My builder told me, when I ended up with a line of pawprints in my new driveway, that its because drying concrete smells like cats p**s.

Perhaps it was a short-sighted bat trying to mate ???
