“Cleaners are a small family of Polyextremophile bacteria.They live in extreme environments such as radioactive waste, acidic pools or the extreme cold, high radiation and zero gravity of space. They are capable of deriving energy from the slow decay of radioactive isotopes, the transformation of acidic compounds or even from ionised plasma from the Sun. Their home is the most impossible places, but at the same time, they could find our own calm tempered environment deadly.”
