According to a new study, the International Space Station (ISS) is found to be infected with germs that can cause skin problems to astronauts. Two new pathogens have been found in the research, and these pathogens have the capability to spread skin infection. However, the study does not specifically get into details of the possible risk of these pathogens to the health of astronauts. NASA analysis has also found a large number of actinobacteria on ISS as the coveted space agency took samples of the dust on the Space Station. This form of bacteria is largely present on the skin of the human, and its existence on the Space Station could be because of the circulation of the same air that is filtered and circulated inside the station time and again.
