Because of its appearance and what I read about it next, I decided to make my own “water bear”Water Bear - aka “Tardigrade” - is an amazing micro-animal. One of the real superhero on earth.According to Wikipedia, “Tardigrades can withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, pressures about six times greater than those found in the deepest ocean trenches, ionizing radiation at doses hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human, and the vacuum of outer space.
