Plankton In Space!

Well well well… this is certainly interesting.  Plankton was found on the outside of the International Space Station.

The Express reports:

Experts are baffled how they got there, but claim a study shows that they can live in space despite lack of oxygen, zero gravity, extreme temperatures, and cosmic radiation.

“The results of the experiment are absolutely unique,” said the head of the Russian ISS orbital mission Vladimir Solovyev.

“We have found traces of sea plankton and microscopic particles on the illuminator surface. This should be studied further.”

“Plankton in these stages of development could be found on the surface of the oceans.

“This is not typical for Baikonur. It means that there are some uplifting air currents which reach the station and settle on its surface,” he was quoted as saying.

“Uplifting air currents” my ass.

There is nowhere near enough air density at the altitude of the space station to suspend ANYTHING.  This is why the station can orbit the Earth at 5 miles per second without incinerating itself. It’s orbiting in a vacuum.  The plankton would also get smashed to bits by the orbital velocity of the space station if air currents were the cause of this.

The only way those plankton got stuck to the outside of the space station is by ELECTRICAL currents, not air currents.  A while back I did a story on electric weather that covered this topic in detail.  That article is a MUST READ.

The plankton on the oceans’ surface become charged, like the dust on Mars or the Moon.  Then they are carried aloft, ever higher, by the same electric currents that drive weather here on Earth.  The finding of plankton on the surface of the space station confirms the ground to space electrical connection and the electrical nature of weather.

This finding also explains how life can hop from solar system to solar system throughout the galaxy.  Consider that since electricity flows in currents, small biologics like plankton are not scattered into space willy nilly.  They ride electrical currents of plasma that connect stars and galaxies to each other.  It’s a safe bet that anywhere there is a habitable environment, life will be present throughout the universe.

It’s also a safe bet that any life, such as plankton, that finds a new habitable environment will rapidly evolve itself to adapt to that new environment.  The work of cellular biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton shows us that slow random genetic mutations are not the cause of evolution.  Evolution is environmentally driven.

    It just ain’t fair. Plankton surviving in space, yet I can’t seem to keep my dog healthy without taking her to the vet all the time.
