You’ve heard of Monkeys in Space… but what about Water Bears?

This microscopic creature, a Tardigrade, also know as a Water Bear is able to survive exposure to space. Hitching a ride on NASA’s Endeavour, the Water Bear endured sub zero temperatures, solar winds, and space’s vacuum.

These little bears are less than 1mm long and can be found both on land and in sea.
