Scientists from the University of Houston found that the bacteria become stronger in space, and yet, perhaps more dangerous. In this regard, future long journeys in space can be compromised. Madhan Tirumalai, doctor of medical Sciences of the University of Houston and a member of the NASA astrobiology Institute, found that bacteria mutate and reproduce in the space environment. Within the most detailed at the moment of the study, the researchers observed the development of 1,000 generations of E. coli (E. coli) in a rotating container with simulated microgravity.
