Scientists have discovered the world's toughest life form. The single-celled microbe, called "strain 121" for the moment, can survive at a scorching 130C higher than the boiling point of water and nearly 20 degrees higher than the previous record holder.

Hmmm. Could the genes of this bug be useful in a manufactured organism?

Maybe.. But I'm not sure what for. That's pretty cool though. I'm pretty sure there may be even more life dwn ther that can survive in even hotter temperatures.
