Earth’s upper atmosphere—below freezing, nearly without oxygen, flooded by UV radiation—is no place to live. But last winter, scientists from the Georgia Institute of Technology discovered that billions of bacteria actually thrive up there.

If this all seems pretty outrageous, let it be known that we wished nobody ever had it in their heads to make chipmunk versions of your music — but hope, of course, is futile.
