Researchers to Send Bacteria Into Orbit Aboard Space Shuttle Atlantis

A team of researchers plan to send an army of microorganisms into space to investigate new ways of preventing diseases that are prone to astronauts. The ship Atlantis is scheduled to be sent up this week, and the microorganisms will be released while in orbit.

This could either be a very useful project, or it could be another huge waste of money. I hope that it serves its purpose, but I believe the chances of that are very small.
