Since the advent of space flight and the establishment of long-duration space stations in Earth’s orbit, such as Skylab, Salyut, Mir, and the ISS, the upper boundary of our biosphere has extended into space. Such space missions expose humans and any other organisms to living conditions not encountered on Earth. In this chapter, we will describe the current knowledge concerning the effect of space related environment on bacteria, including space flight and related simulations on Earth.
