Cockroaches can be useful in space for quite a few reasons. For one, cockroaches can be used to provide protein for the astronauts. Also, cockroach saliva can be used to increase plant growth. The purpose of this object is to store cockroaches in space. The height of the container is just 1-2 millimeters higher than the height of the average cockroach, which allows the cockroaches to move about freely in the container. The holes on the roof of the container are large enough for air to travel through and small enough so that the cockroaches cannot escape. The roof is also removable, which makes it easier to extract the cockroaches. The side door is also removable, so it is possible for one to remove/add one or two cockroaches at a time.
