Abstract We have shown using ESA's Biopan facility flown in Earth orbit that when exposed to the space environment for 2 weeks the survival rate of Synechococcus (Nägeli), a halophilic cyanobacterium isolated from the evaporitic gypsum–halite crusts that form along the marine intertidal, and Halorubrum chaoviator a member of the Halobacteriaceae isolated from an evaporitic NaCl crystal obtained from a salt evaporation pond, were higher than all other test organisms except Bacillus spores. These… 
Survival of the Halophilic Archaeon Halovarius luteus after Desiccation, Simulated Martian UV Radiation and Vacuum in Comparison to Bacillus atrophaeus
TLDR
A novel haloarchaea isolated from Urmia Salt Lake, Iran, Halovarius luteus strain DA50T, was exposed to varying levels of simulated extraterrestrial conditions and compared to that of the bacteria Bacillus atrophaeus, which showed the greatest decrease in viability.
The Effects of HZE Particles, γ and X-ray Radiation on the Survival and Genetic Integrity of Halobacterium salinarum NRC-1, Halococcus hamelinensis, and Halococcus morrhuae.
TLDR
Novel data is presented on the survival and genetic stability of three halophilic archaea following exposure to simulated outer space radiation and the DNA damage increased in a dose-dependent manner.
Desert Cyanobacteria - Potential for Space and Earth Applications
TLDR
The endurance of desert cyanobacteria is currently tested under ground-based space and Martian-simulated conditions as well as in low Earth orbit outside the International Space Station with the aim to understand the limits of life and potential habitability of the solar system and beyond.

Abstract EXPOSE-R flew as the second of the European Space Agency (ESA) EXPOSE multi-user facilities on the International Space Station. During the mission on the external URM-D platform of the
The Biogeography of Great Salt Lake Halophilic Archaea: Testing the Hypothesis of Avian Mechanical Carriers
TLDR
The geography of the sites was consistent with the location of the sub-tropical jet stream where birds typically migrate, supporting the avian dispersal hypothesis and analysis of the environmental factors pointed to salinity as the most important factor for selection.

Astromicrobiology or exomicrobiology, is the study of microorganisms in outer space. Microorganisms in outer space are most wide spread form of life on Earth, and are capable of colonising any
Cold adapted desiccation-tolerant bacteria isolated from polar soils presenting high resistance to anhydrobiosis
TLDR
The presence of desiccation-adapted bacteria in Arctic permafrost and Antarctic surface soils and their survivability to dryness are investigated, opening the possibility of further experiments aiming to investigate the resistance mechanisms of polar anhydrobionts.
Exploring Microbial Activity in Low-pressure Environments.
TLDR
Current knowledge on hypopiezophilic and hypopIEzotolerant microorganisms, methods for isolation and cultivation, justify why there should be more focus for future research, and discuss their importance for astrobiology are presented.

Protection of Bacterial Spores in Space, a Contribution to the Discussion on Panspermia
TLDR
The data suggest that in a scenario of interplanetary transfer of life, small rock ejecta of a few cm in diameter could be sufficiently large to protect bacterial spores against the intense insolation; however, micron-sized grains, as originally requested by Panspermia, may not provide sufficient protection for spores to survive.

    Origins of life and evolution of the biosphere
  • 2005
TLDR
Onboard of several spacecrafts, spores of Bacillus subtilis were exposed to selected parameters of space, such as space vacuum, different spectral ranges of solar UV-radiation and cosmic rays, applied separately or in combination, and their survival and genetic changes after retrieval are studied.
Space Microbiology
TLDR
The data support the likelihood of interplanetary transfer of microorganisms within meteorites, the so-called lithopanspermia hypothesis.
