Edge Of Space Microbes Revived

5 posts in this topic

Microbes collected from the edge of space have been brought back to life in the lab.

This enabled the high-flying organisms to be identified, almost two years after they were found in air samples collected by a weather balloon cruising at 41,000 metres (135,000 feet) over southern India.

The two species of bacteria (B. simplex, S. pasteuri) and one fungus (E. albus) are similar to common ground-dwelling microbes which lurk in soil and vegetation, says Milton Wainwright of the University of Sheffield, UK, who worked out how to culture the cells.

How the bugs got there is not known, but there are three possibilities: they were carried up on winds, they sneaked into the samples on Earth or they have flown through space and are aliens making their way down to our planet.
