Almost 2,000 previously unknown bacteria discovered in the human gut

Credit: Getty Images: Science Photo Library - SCIEPROWhile harsh radiation and a "weightless" environment make International Space Station microbes mutate, there's no danger of them turning into superbugs resistant to antibiotics, a new study shows.A team analyzing bacteria on the space station discovered different genes in the space bacteria than similar bacteria on Earth. The space genes, however, won't hurt the astronauts. "We were looking for different kinds of genes to see if the same genes were present in the bacteria in both places," said principal investigator Erica Marie Hartmann, an environmental engineer at Northwestern University, in an e-mail to Seeker.The researchers looked at several types of common and harmless microbes, such as Staphylococcus aureus, which normally lives on human skin. On Earth, the investigators collected the staph directly from human skin, but on the space station, they asked astronauts to pick up the staph on different space station surfaces. This was to
