The new coating has protected ISS from superbugs

Space is a sterile environment without bacteria, but inside the International space station they are still there. No matter how hard the researchers, together with the astronauts on the station will still get the germs and viruses that the space environment is dangerous for astronauts with weakened immune systems. When you consider that in a confined space can occur, and antibiotic-resistant superbugs, the risk increases twice. Fortunately, a new antibacterial coating that was used on the station the last few months, turned out to be a very effective means for their destruction.

Coverage is AGXX, and is composed of silver and ruthenium. These components are actively involved in the destruction of bacteria, yeasts and fungi, and this has been proven in the course of a long experiment. For several months this material was used to constant cleansing of the most dirty places on the ISS — the restroom door.

The researchers noticed that under the influence of contained in AGXX substances, the number of bacteria gradually decreased. Large differences were highlighted after 6, 12 and 19 months after installation of the coating. Unfortunately, its effectiveness is gradually reduced, because it sticks the particles of dead skin, debris and other dust that hinder direct contact with bacteria.

Evaluation of the surface showed that at the moment no dangerous germs and this result is very encouraging. While scientists believe that the material is unsuitable for use during the flight to Mars — they should come up with a more advanced way of dealing with bacteria. At least, they need to work on its shelf life.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria on the ISS was found at the end of 2018. They were rod-shaped Enterobacter, which being on the Earth has become a cause of disease in newborns.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
