It's one small step for Tardigrada, and one giant leap for the animal kingdom: The toughest creature on Earth has survived a trip into space.Except for a few hardy strains of bacteria, any other creature would have been destroyed -- but tardigrades handled the voyage as though it were a dry spell on their local moss patch.
Uh oh. Where are the animal rights activists complaining about killing poor Tardigradas in the name of science?
That is SERIOUSLY cool! Thanks for the link Ehtyar, I would have missed it otherwise
