How many bats must we lose in the name of Science?

One, so far.

The little half-vampire was clinging to the side of the shuttle during the successful launch of STS-119. According to an animal expert, the bat had an injured wing and shuffled off his mortal coil during the launch. We salute you, intrepid rodent!

Rest in peace, little dumbass!

    Actually, the count may stand at two.

    “It was not the first bat to land on a shuttle during a countdown. Previously, one of the winged creatures landed on the tank during the countdown to launch shuttle Columbia on its STS-90 mission in 1998.”
