Saw a thread that mentions how bugs use the stars for orientation... what if... they came from the stars man...

Old article though, but you know - they do look... different. When one looks at a bug, they appear alien.

What if! When the asteroid that 'hit' earth, you know, the one that wiped all the 'dino-snores' out... maybe it blew apart and brought bug eggs with it!

Re: Can bugs survive in space?
Emmanuel Velikovsky skirted around the subject in Worlds In Collision. He noted how plagues of insects and diseases commonly followed close encounters with comets in the past. He never said the plagues came directly from the comets, just that there was a connection somehow.

I guess you make up your own mind as to whether the plagues came off the comets, or whether the comets just somehow made them worse.

Very interesting, hf thank you for contributing that.

It makes you wonder, take a fly and put him in the freezer, pull him out - yup - frozen. Take a hair dryer to him, watch him resurrect.

Insects still breathe oxygen.

Sorry.

I do agree that insects are certainly different though...

There was actualy a case of a bacteria that flew to the moon aboard Lunar Surveyor 5. It spent 2 1/2 years on the moon and was returned to earth by the apollo 12 crew. They revived it and cultured in the Lunar Recieving Laboratory.

They found it in the TV camera that was on the Surveyor. Somebody sneezed in the camera before it was launched, probably during assembly. The camera was collected up along with a few bits of wire and other parts and brought back to earth for study. The bacteria was S. mitis, a common bacteria found in the human respritory tract.

So we know for a fact that bacteria at least can survive years in space, alive and reviveable if they have a little bit of protection from direct solar radiation.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8935143


Not totally true and one could wonder if during flight they simply grew smaller and required less and we have to consider if they were frozen grin

However, a variety of recent empirical findings support a link between oxygen and insect size, including: (i) most insects develop smaller body sizes in hypoxia, and some develop and evolve larger sizes in hyperoxia; (ii) insects developmentally and evolutionarily reduce their proportional investment in the tracheal system when living in higher aPO2, suggesting that there are significant costs associated with tracheal system structure and function; and (iii) larger insects invest more of their body in the tracheal system, potentially leading to greater effects of aPO2 on larger insects. Together, these provide a wealth of plausible mechanisms by which tracheal oxygen delivery may be centrally involved in setting the relatively small size of insects and for hyperoxia-enabled Palaeozoic gigantism.

I heard one astronaut had lice accompanying him inside his spacesuit during an ISS repair spacewalk.
