Terrestrial Life in Space!

Following up on my July lit review, I am particularly geeked by this recent bit of news... WATER BEARS IN SPACE, everybody!

Like, OMG, you guys. I could talk about this story in relation to popular/scholarly information and its potential uses for library instruction, but I'm really just too overwhelmingly excited that we (Earthlings) have reached the Final Frontier, surviving the vacuum of space without special equipment. It's a good week for science, y'all.


  1. Did I mention your blog is delightful?

  2. omg i LOVE water bears!

  3. Now the question arises, 'How can we harnass the tardigrades to do our bidding in space? Mwahahahaha!'
