    By Jonathan Amos Science correspondent, BBC News

    A small English fishing village has produced an out-of-this-world discovery.

    These are just everyday organisms that live on the coast in Beer in Devon and they can survive in space

    Bacteria taken from cliffs at Beer on the South Coast have shown themselves to be hardy space travellers.

    The bugs were put on the exterior of the space station to see how they would cope in the hostile conditions that exist above the Earth's atmosphere.

    And when scientists inspected the microbes a year and a half later, they found many were still alive.

    These survivors are now thriving in a laboratory at the Open University (OU) in Milton Keynes.

    The experiment is part of a quest to find microbes that could be useful to future astronauts who venture beyond low-Earth orbit to explore the rest of the Solar System.
