sem of water bear (macrobiotus sp.) .tardigrades are polyextremophiles and are able to survive in extreme environments that would kill almost any other animal. some can survive temperatures of -273°c (-460 °f), close to absolute zero, temperatures as high as 151 °c (303 °f), 1,000 times more radiation than other animals,and almost a decade without water. in september 2007, tardigrades were taken into low earth orbit on the foton-m3 mission and for 10 days were exposed to the vacuum of space. after they were returned to earth, it was discovered that many of them survived and laid eggs that hatched normally, making these the only animals known to be able to survive the vacuum of space..x 250 @ 10cm.. tardigrade. coloured scanning electron micrograph (sem) of a tardigrade (macrobiotus sp.), or water bear. this tiny invertebrate lives in aquatic and semi-aquatic habitats such as lichen and damp moss. magnification: x250 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
