This experiment was aimed at establishing, for the first time, the survival capability of lichens exposed to space conditions. [...] Key Method The lichens used were the bipolar species Rhizocarpon geographicum and Xanthoria elegans, which were collected above 2000 m in the mountains of central Spain and as endolithic communities inhabiting granites in the Antarctic Dry Valleys.Expand
