2001.03.22: It Came From Lower Earth Orbit

Perhaps a more important question even than "Can I wrangle a free taco out of Mir's demise?" is "What will survive the re-entry?" I direct your attention to these quotes:

"Although the porthole and other windows were made of extra-hard quartz glass and mounted on titanium covered with enamel, they were partly destroyed by a colony of fungi and bacteria visible to the naked eye."


"We don’t know how they [space-grown microorganisms] will behave if they get back into regular Earth conditions."

And if that doesn't rock your world, how about this--Stephen Hawking's secret double life as a gangsta rapper?
