First animal to survive exposure to space
In 2007, a little known creature called a tardigrade became the first animal to survive exposure to space.

It prevailed over sub-zero temperatures, unrelenting solar winds and an oxygen-deprived space vacuum.

Re: First animal to survive exposure to space
What if.........we lose them in space and then they manage to survive landing onto another planet?
Wonder if they would evolve into anything, if survive (Which they have at least shown us they can do for a brief time).

Then feed it a diet high in trans-fats.

Whatever it takes, something that looks that weird needs to die.

Very old news, but interesting nonetheless. I believe they successfully reproduce in space, too.
