"The International Space Station is infested with mysterious and potentially dangerous space bugs" is the headline !

Where/when have we seen this movie before ? hahah

Actually at this stage of their development the bugs pose no threat to the people onboard the ISS or so the story goes.

Life always finds a way..Humm yep I saw that movie too.


It’s feared some of the bacteria could be drug-resistant, meaning they could pose more of a threat to astronauts because traditional treatments would not work properly. However, researchers stressed the drugs are not harmful to humans currently aboard the ISS. Dr Nitin Singh, who has just published a report on the bugs, said: ‘Given the multi-drug resistance results for these [bacteria] and the increased chance of pathogenicity we have identified, these species potentially pose important health considerations for future missions.’ Luckily, the tiny organisms do not appear to be virulent enough to make humans ill at this stage, although they could evolve into a more dangerous form.

From another source which has more of an edge but still is probably more or less a cut and paste job ?


THE International Space Station is infested with mysterious space bugs that may be leaving astronauts at risk of ‘serious harm’, according to a new study.

Scientists discovered a thriving ecosystem of "infectious organisms" aboard the station which are similar to bugs found in hospitals on Earth.

It's feared portions of the bacteria could be drug-resistant which would leave astronauts at risk of serious harm should traditional treatments fail to help.

Dr Nitin Singh, the first author on the report, said: "Given the multi-drug resistance results for these [bacteria] and the increased chance of pathogenicity we have identified, these species potentially pose important health considerations for future missions."

But, researchers stressed the bugs are not harmful to humans currently aboard the International Space Station (ISS).


Is this where the astronaut returns to earth and becomes a blood sucking creature from the void of space or just starts your old regular pandemic that
kills off a big chunk of the human race which would make the NWO folks wet their pants out of joy ? Naw none of the above ... But... Life finds a way...

The same can be said for the flu, or any other "bug" on earth.

Sounds like clickbait doomporn to me.

" or any other "bug" on earth" being your key phrase ... You need to watch more horror/science fiction space movies..Expand your imagination etc etc hahah

Um, just spray them with some isobutanol and call it a day.

cleanse it with fire

no i am not advocating setting fire to ISS

we must burn out this sort of hyperbolic click bait bollox

yes - there are micro orhanism colonies in ISS - but being scared because :

" if they follow a certain evolutionary pathway - they might be dangerous one day "

is utter idiocy

PS - on a serious note - would ozone sterilisation be safe to use on ISS ?? - assuming the crew had a protected independant breathing air supply - flood each compartment with ozone - and leave for 24 h

That reminds me of filling balloons with butane.

Good fun!

Like forewarned in that movie "Life"...
Perfect setup.
Wasn't it a few months ago we saw a blaming off RRussia for making a hole in the ISS?
...scripted story unravells....

This is awesome! These bacteria will give insivht into miro gravity microbials multiply & spread.

This is also very dangerous! We have no idea what the bacterias reaction to earths atmophere will be, how it can transfer or possibly combine with other common cellular virus or antibodies.

What happens when this bacteria is sickening to those on board?, do we leave them in space & send doctors or risk injury & spreading of the diaease by bringing them back to a contamination room? It could be they have very high antiboitic properties though instead.

The I.S.S was just tampered with recently so these bacteria could have snuck in through that drilling hole, most likely did. That comes to the mind as, it could be another sabotage or space race technique because these things are steadily pucking up pace really quick when it comes to the now NEED of a space army & space hospital.

Are we being tricked by foriegn or domestic enemies of the state?, conditioned by our own to like & need space equiptment?, or just other reasons? Remember the timing for all of these space incidences is becoming very common since our space army was publisized.

Don't worry about them. They're Earth microbes existing in Earths atmosphere, the only difference being gravity and the airs cleaner on the ISS. They went up there with all the astronauts and equipment.

You're sitting in a cloud of microbial residues and covered in bazillions of them. Your whole body is part microbes inside and out. We're all like Pigpen off Peanuts. It'd be nasty if it wasn't so normal and has always been this way.

Being how these organisms in their current form evolved around human-based structures in orbit, they would technically be extraterrestrial.

Well you can guess that these are related to the human waste system, probably at some point technical issues hit the space toilette while one of the crew whom are from many nations has been using it and it has then been a case of avoiding the floating poo-steroids.

Seriously though even with a vacuum system there is going to be at least some material escape into the air and even a minuscule droplet of urine could contain enough bacterium that if it land's upon a surface with something for those bacteria to metabolize then they are going to multiply.

Also Belching, coughing and spitting while speaking etc.

Then add in all the insect, plant and other biological sources of potential bacteria that have been used in many different studies and experiments.

Give such escaped bacteria a few month's outside there original environment in otherwise sterile conditions with no or very little competition from other bacteria and add the effect's of zero G, low UV from the artificial lighting and who know's what it could mutate into.

Somewhere in deep space an alien astronaut probably took a dump on his alien space loo, flushed it into space assuming his civilization had not yet developed a method or for some other reason chose not to recycle it and that lump of alien feces then drifted for countless eon's it's bacterial passengers asleep during the long passage until it somehow made it to a planet, cue a couple of Billion years and a bunch of evolutionists had evolved from it.


You know what I should have said.
The Russians did it - bug's listening to everything.

Because being is space turns common bacteria into "SPACE BUGS"!
