New life found in Nasa's spacecraft clean rooms - Telegraph | Gentlemachines | Scoop.it
A new species of bacteria has been discovered living in the clean rooms used by Nasa to build their spacecraft
Artur Alves's insight:

"The berry-shaped bacteria, called Tersicoccus phoenicis, is so unusual that it has been classified not just as a new species but also a new genus.

Scientists said they have now found the bacteria in two separate clean rooms – one in Florida where Nasa’s Mars Phoenix Lander was constructed and at the European Space Agency’s facility in Kourou, French Guiana."
