I like how they float and move their little appendages and yet they look like pigs flying at the same time..

They are probably one of the toughest organisms on earth.. They can live in situations and conditions that would kill humans...

Some are sealed in epoxy with 100 million human, plant and microorganism cells. Some are encapsulated onto the sticky side of a 1cm square piece of Kapton tape that is sealed inside the disc stack. They cannot reproduce on the moon
