#spacemicrobes (Project MERCCURI) on the Today Show again

The Today Show did a follow up piece after we identified a couple of bacteria collected on their set, one of which will go up to the International Space Station in February (see the first piece here).

I tried to craft the message here that microbes are everywhere and most of them are harmless or good but the translation from scientist to producer to show host mangled some of that.  :)
