L.i.f.e.
 
I recently heard about the LIFE (Living Interplanetary Flight Experiment) on Wikipedia.

What do you guys think?

EDIT: I forgot to say, but when it's launched they could have a combo pack like the "Heart" Packages, with some of the occupants of the LIFE experiment, looking like a rocket or something. (Water Bear, Yeast, possibly even a Martian Life Bonus!)

Hmm... That's a very interesting article! The one microbe that caught my eye in there was Deinococcus radiodurans, which is "one of the most radioresistant organisims known".

It can take up to 5,000 Gy of radiation, and to put it to scale, "10 Gy can kill a human"

I think it would be pretty cool if GM dedicated some microbes to this project! ;)
