Abstract

The International Space Station (ISS) is a unique, completely confined habitat for the human crew and co-inhabiting microorganisms. In the experiment EXTREMOPHILES we investigated the microbial bioburden and biodiversity from three surface and air sampling events aboard the ISS during increments 51 and 52 (2017) with respect to: i) microbial sources, diversity and distribution within the ISS, ii) functional capacity of microbiome and microbial isolates, iii) extremotolerance and antibiotics-resistance (compared to ground controls), and iv) microbial behavior towards ISS-relevant materials such as biofilm formation, or potential for degradation.
