Someday, I believe we will find an organism here on this planet that requires radiation to survive, absorbs italmost completely, and can form a biofilm.  We will use this organism to protect our fragile little bodies from the extremes of space and travel beyond our current abilities of imagination. I just hope we do not blow up intelligent rocks for there mineral content.

Musing and dreaming,
