Incredible animals that can survive in Space

They are called tardigrades or water bears and they are probably the only creatures that can survive in the extreme conditions of Space.

Tardigrades are strange microscopic, multi-cellular animals. About 750 species are known to the scientific world. They always live in water: in the oceans and in ponds but most typically in small droplets of water bound by mosses or lichens. So you can bet that some tardigrades will be very close to you, usually in a distance of less than 10 meters !

They are short and plump with 4 pairs of limbs. You can find them anywhere. They can survive in temperatures of absolute zero or more than 151 degrees C, they can tolerate radiation thousands of times more than any other animal, they can stay for 10 years without water and they can withstand pressures as powerful as 6000 times that of the atmosphere!

Is Nature incredible or not!
