Three Unidentified species of bacteria found on the ISS
International Space Station (ISS)

Researches have uncovered three obscure strains of microscopic bacteria that have been discovered living in distinct places in the International Space Station (ISS) out of which one strain was recognized as Methylorubrum rhodesianum, while the other three were already unseen, belonging to a novel species.

The NASA researchers assume that the new microscopic organisms developing on the space apparatus may hold the way to developing yields on Mars. 

The microscopic organisms were found on the outside of the station’s table and on an old HEPA filter that recently got back to Earth. They suspect to be identified with experiments to develop plants and food using the bacteria.
