On the MKS found resistant to antibiotics species of bacteria and viruses
In NASA believe in everything and even in the fact that life came to Earth from space, so that work in this direction as it is expected, Western scientists are working out different scenarios of life on Earth. Looking for different unique bacteria scientists around the world, even recently found something interesting in the toilet on the ISS. Bacteria as bacteria, but their familiar antibiotics do not kill, but only make even stronger. If you want to know more about these conclusions, you should probably read the work in the journal BMC Microbiology. Perhaps if these bacteria found at least as it were dangerous for the crew, the ISS would repeat the fate of the station Mir, but apparently not as difficult as draw. If these bacteria suddenly somehow mutate, then they can become pathogenic and even then they will fight or galui will try to win, because they at this time just don`t kill the living creatures of the micro world.
In the publication we are talking about the bacterium Enterobacter, which usually lives in the soil, in the sewers and in bio toilets, but sometimes found in the intestines of people who eat vegetables from the garden and do not wash their hands. Genus Enterobacter has many varieties of this bacterium, there are more than 1291 and this is probably not all of the known science. According to its parameters, the type that was found on the MKS is most suitable bacteria from hospitals in Tanzania, it is an intestinal parasite Enterobacter bugandensis. He even sometimes found in public restrooms in the USA, so be careful not to touch all that glitters is super trendy and kind of like clean public restrooms.
The similarity is big, but still the similarity is not so much, more than all the differences. The strain that was discovered on the MKS in 2015 is not harmful, but is not afraid of the usual and quite strong antibiotics.
Should we be afraid of that, but it is not a dangerous bacteria as a result of mutations will be dangerous Scientists and they have calculated and they came out the figure of 79%, so the likelihood of dangerous mutations from seemingly harmless until the bacteria in the toilet bowl of the toilet to the ISS.
This bacterium has been studied in NASA laboratory for three years and came to the conclusion that so far this strain of Enterobacter bacteria is not dangerous for cosmonauts from the ISS. But watch out for this bacterium is still necessary, everything in this life happens and you need to be attentive to different challenges of nature.
