Tiny water-dwelling  creatures called tardigrades known for their ability to survive in the most extreme environments will be subject to a series of experiments at the International Space Station to reveal the secrets of their superpowers.

The 0.02-inch (0.5 mm) eight-legged creatures, also known as water bears, were sent to the space station as part of the Cell Science-04 experiment aboard the SpaceX Dragon 22nd resupply mission on June 3.
