About The Project:
The experiment involves the survivability study of Tardigrades in the harsh conditions of the moon. Tardigrades are a phylum of small invertebrates. They are believed to be a class of arthropods. They are usually less than 1mm in size and are perhaps, the toughest creatures on Earth. It can withstand temperatures in the range +150°C to -200°C. Very high pressures or vacuum, harsh UV radiations, water or no water, nourishments or no nourishments- it can survive them all. It is because of these extraordinary qualities that we want to conduct an ultimate test of its survival, i.e. on moon.
