Why there will be no cats in space anytime soon

That fluffy, spinning object bouncing off the walls in zero-g is, yes, a cat, riding the Vomit Comet.

I suspect this will be gone Real Soon. However, here's the link to the QuickTime movie, courtesy of the USAF Department of Physics web site a BoingBoing reader (via BoingBoing).

Update (1:27 pm ET): That didn't take long. It's gone.

Uber-update: You can't keep a good cat down. As could be expected, a BoingBoing reader donwnloaded and mirrored the QuickTime of the flying kitty, and I've updated the link. Now, someone please tell me, "Who are these people?" "Is the cat okay?"
