NASA Sends Super-Bacteria to Space Station
Am I the only one who has ever watched a science fiction movie?!
NASA, in conjunction with a medical researcher just sent the “antibiotic-resistant superbug” MRSA into space where astronauts will study how it grows and mutates in zero-gravity.
I’ll tell you how it grows and mutates in zero-gravity, into a unstoppable killing machine undetectable until an astronaut (who was immune in space) returns to Earth and ends up with hundreds of dead scientists and government officials around him as the now, SUPER-superbug finds life pretty darn easy in the fully oxygenated, sweet, easy living, full gravity realm of EARTH!
O.K. Maybe I’m overreacting. I’m sure that everyone has thought this through and pretty much knows exactly how everything will go down.
“Goel is curious to see the effects of not only micro-gravity on the bacteria but electromagnetic radiation and other unanticipated elements.” – CNN
Unanticipated elements is ALWAYS what starts the superbug, humanity killing, virus from space. I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
Since once an astronaut comes back, and this whole thing goes all Resident Evil and starts killing everyone, it will be too late, I’m taking this chance to say:
I TOLD YOU SO!
If anyone needs me, I’ll be online looking for cheap, remote, mountain cabins with a reliable water supply.
How many ways is this a bad idea?
- The Andromeda Strain
- Resident Evil
- The Invasion
And about a 100 other movies and TV shows that I can’t think of right now.
