Germs That Go Into Space Return Deadlier Than Ever

What happen when germs go into space on a rocket and come back to Earth? They become stronger and deadlier than ever:

Scientists wanted to see how space travel affects germs, so they took some along — carefully wrapped — for the ride.

The result: Mice fed the space germs were three times more likely to get sick and died quicker than others fed identical germs that had remained behind on Earth.

Now this makes one question perhaps those bacteria and germs present in that comet that hit a few days ago may have been carrying a rather virulent bug? Maybe this is how we'll be wiped out? Not by war but rather by a super bug brought back by Astronauts.

dimestorenovel-- how could we not send bacteria into space? They're all over us.

More importantly, don't let the mutated germs roam free when they get back from space, I think.
