About microscopic forms of life, including Bacteria, Archea, protozoans, algae and fungi. Topics relating to viruses, viroids and prions also belong here.
yep, as far as I know, beside earth and most of human artifacts launched in the close universe there are no terrestrial (at least) bacteria, or other life forms
And on our earth, you can expect that lava, sulfuric acid ponds found in nature (close to sulfur sources) and other limited but hostiles places like this are quite sterile.

Yep, space, stars, other planets, they don't contain life... or it hasn't been discovered yet. There could be alien life form but not look like bacteria.
On Earth, air contains some bacteria, but they are not naturally airborne; very small number of bacteria are found in the upper atmosphere due to sterilizing effect of sunlight.
... do not know. did not ever go or observe space. (+_+)
but, there are some... with the same condition approximately the same with earth... another galaxy where we can find some organism. maybe hehe
Members of the group Bacteria are indeed not found in several harsh environments on earth. For example, members of the Bacteria group are rarely found thriving in glaciers, salt, or near hydrothermal vents. However, several Archaeans are known to prefer such environments.
Some bacteria even eat radio active waste/Uranium!

Hmm...then I think that we can use this bacteria to degrade those nuclear waste in the nuclear power plant...
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?
A: They have all the solutions.
What seriously?!!! Well isn't that a far better solution than burying it?
Bacteria can't eat those. I think Linn might be referring to the element uranium itself although it's still incredible!
