Solibacillus kalamii

  • Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), the foremost lab of NASA for work on interplanetary travel, discovered the new bacteria on the filters of the International Space Station (ISS) and named it Solibacillus kalamii to honour the late President.
  • Even as it orbits the earth some 400 kilometres above, the ISS is home to many types of bacteria and fungi.
  • These spore formers tend to withstand high radiation and also produce some useful compounds protein-wise which will be helpful for biotechnology applications.
