Deinococcus radiodurans is a bacterium that survives extreme doses of radiation: UV, X-rays, Υ-rays, you name it. This guy can stand it all! It took a while but here you go – you can download its coloring pdf!
This #spacemicrobe is also considered a model organism for life under martian conditions and has recently traveled on the outside of the International Space Station, surviving UV radiation during 1 whole year!
