Probably the most interesting discovery of recent years involving living creatures occurred quite by chance.On February 1, 2003, the US Space Shuttle STS-107 (Columbia) exploded on re-entry after 16 days in space. All of its crew were killed. However a large amount of its debris fell to Earth and amongst this debris was an experiment involving C.elgan worms. Many hundreds of these worms were still alive and breeding! This amazing result adds weight to the theory that life can travel the universe on meteors and asteroids etc.

It's more than just these rods... It's the overall collection of images that we are regularly seeing.

It could be something like a virus. It couldn't be something like a cnidarian.
