Just remember that E. Coli are an extremely diverse group, with the majority posing no real risk to people.

"scientists could even fight climate change by engineering the bacteria to break down greenhouse gases . . ."

When asked how humankind will end on Earth, some think there will be a natural disaster, others think there will be war or a maniac with a death-wish. I`m pretty sure it will be well-meaning quasi-scientific types who engineer some kind of high-altitude bacteria that fundamentally alters the atmosphere that we need to survive, or some other well-intended but poorly thought-out plan of that sort.

Well if they`d put Hiltons and Lohans on the no-fly list that poo wouldn`t be up there.

I am not in the least bit surprised. If organisms can live at the bottom of the oceans without access to light or breathable air then why not up in the sky? The more we learn about the earth, the better; having that knowledge will help bring us closer to understanding why the human race should stop crapping on it`s own front doorstep.

E. coli floating around in the upper atmosphere. More good news.

To be followed shortly by the follow-up study, "33,000 Kinds of Bacteria Live On Feet."
