Amazing creatures. It's a Tardigrade world, and we're just living in it.

I wonder if tardigrades can be genetically modified to terraform planets? Just a random thought...

Fartout oxygen, I'm for it!

On the other hand, Cyanobacterias are the most destructive creatures, turned whole planet from CO2 breathing, to O2.....
