It sounds weird, but I actually know the researchers doing this work (the ones on Earth) and it's really cool.

If they board the ISS, they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skin into their clothing, and if we're very lucky, they'll do it in that order.

It will, at least, give insight into unexplained hieroglyphics that have appeared on the outside of the station's windows, how mummies respond to weightlessness, and how the pyramids got up there onto the space station in the first place.

If you see a pyramid in space, the first thing you need to do is alert Stargate Command.
