Микробы из космоса

Ученые свозили микробов в космос и они там мутировали очень неприятным образом.
Теперь ждем, как в плохом фантастическом фильме - в другой раз более сильная мутация, случайная утечка и ... всем на конец!
Мертвая Земля!
И не надо никаких террористов!

Germs Taken to Space Come Back Deadlier

WASHINGTON — It sounds like the plot for a scary B-movie: Germs go into space on a rocket and come back stronger and deadlier than ever. Except, it really happened.

The germ: Salmonella, best known as a culprit of food poisoning. The trip: Space Shuttle STS-115, September 2006. The reason: Scientists wanted to see how space travel affects germs, so they took some along — carefully wrapped — for the ride. The result: Mice fed the space germs were three times more likely to get sick and died quicker than others fed identical germs that had remained behind on Earth.

"Wherever humans go, microbes go, you can't sterilize humans. Wherever we go, under the oceans or orbiting the earth, the microbes go with us"
