Space Station Mold Can Survive High Doses Of Radiation

Molds are present in every human environment, including the International Space Station (ISS), with astronauts spending many hours a week ensuring the mold doesn’t grow to a size where it becomes a health problem. It is a sturdy life form that can withstand a lot of extremes. Now, recent research suggests it can also survive high doses of radiation, meaning its spores could exist on the outside of the ISS. The research, presented at the 2019 Astrobiology Science Conference, showed that spores of Aspergillus and Penicillium (both found inside the ISS) can survive exposure to X-rays 200 times higher than the dose that would kill a human. Combined with their endurance to high temperatures, ultraviolet lights, chemicals, and dry conditions, they are extremely resilient. “We now know that [fungal spores] …
