Sunita Williams and Her Crew Are In Trouble After A ‘Spacebug’ Was Discovered On The Space Station

Sunita Williams, an Indian-origin astronaut from NASA, and the eight other crew members on board the International Space Station (ISS), including those now residing on the orbiting station, are dealing with a new headache. A superbug hides within the International orbit Station, a metropolis in orbit. Scientists discovered a multi-drug resistant microbe called ‘Enterobacter bugandensis’ that has developed and grown in the ISS’s restricted environment. Because it is resistant to several drugs, it is commonly referred to as a’superbug’. This bacterium attacks the respiratory system. Spacebugs are not extraterrestrial life; rather, they are bugs that journeyed as covert co-passengers with astronauts to the International Space Station.
