News flash: space germs can kill

From the Department of Science that Scares Me comes this little piece on salmonella sent to space that came back more dangerous than before.  The researchers describe it as a mutation that allowed the bacteria to survive in a certain kind of environment – microgravity – that fortuitously allowed them to be more effective (read: deadly) in organisms.

Thanks for giving me something more to worry about.  Sheesh!
