Tardigrades - Sunbathing On Asteroids mp3 flac download
Tardigrades are polyextremophiles and are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. Some can survive temperatures of -273°C, close to absolute zero, temperatures as high as 151 °C (303 °F), 1,000 times more radiation than other animals such as humans, more than a century without water, and even the vacuum of space.

Scientists are still trying to work out how they survive these extremes. At a minimum, all of Earth’s oceans would have to boil away to completely wipe out all life on the planet. Today, astronomers know of only a dozen asteroids and dwarf planets with enough mass to boil Earth’s oceans if they collided with our planet. And none of these objects are expected to ever intersect Earth's orbit. There are asteroids out there that do pose collision risks and are large enough to trigger an impact winter, blotting out sunlight and causing temperatures to drop. This would be catastrophic for many life-forms on the surface, but tardigrades would have a refuge.
Tardigrades move slowly as they clamber around on bits of debris. They were first named tardigrada in Italian from the Latin meaning slow walker. Tardigrades walk on short, stubby legs located under their bodies, not sticking out to the sides. These stout legs propel them unhurriedly and deliberately about their habitat. Tardigrades have five body sections, a well-defined head and four body segments, each of which has a pair of legs fitted with claws.

My love for tardigrades began as a sixth grade science project when my friend and mentor, Ernie Schiller, first introduced me to them. I was hooked right away by their bear-like appearance! I am interested in tardigrades asbio-indicators and have studied their behavior when exposed to several environmental contaminants including ultra-violetlight, sulfuric and nitric acid, and sulfur dioxide. But many people are not familiar with tardigrades, and wonder what exactly they are. Eutardigrade clinging to moss habitat.
Say hello to tardigrades. These tiny, odd-looking creatures can survive extreme temperatures, years without food and water, and even outer space. Catastrophes like asteroids and supernovas, that would wipe out humans and probably most other life forms on Earth. Not that anything like that’s going to happen any time soon; it’s just scientists imagining the scenarios. This means that, thanks to these gummy-looking oddities, it would be tough to wipe out all life on Earth. Although nearby supernovae or large asteroid impacts would be catastrophic for people, tardigrades could be unaffected, claims study co-author David Sloan
