Antibiotic-resistant bacteria found on space station toilet

Quote:Wherever humans go, our bacterial companions will follow. That’s as true in space as it is on Earth, and while we’ve known that microbial astronauts are present on the International Space Station, one group of researchers has just found a new reason to worry about them
That's quite interesting - good pick as always.

As the good Mr Singh noted, the implications for long-term missions aren't good.

That toilet doesn't look like much fun. One of these missions will take an astronaut aboard who has norovirus, which will be a learning curve for the crew.
The enemy within.
