They possess gravity-sensing organs reminiscent of human inner ears, and although each had been fitted with a small transmitter before launch to monitor neuronal activity, the signals were found to be intermittent, possibly due to an electrical fault or problems with the oxygen-circulation pumps in their aquariums.
