Something big and bad threatens the scientists who work on important projects on the International Space Station. It’s not aliens, space rocks or some other illness from outer space. It’s mold. Workers at the Kennedy Space Center recently averted disaster by disinfecting bags of cargo that had tested positive for black mold with hydrogen peroxide and wet wipes. Apparently this was the first time that any equipment or cargo had tested positive for the toxic substance, and the teams there are looking into how the cargo could have gotten affected.
It’s a mystery how it could have happened because everything that gets sent to the space station is kept in very controlled environments that aren’t exposed to humidity, even when they are in transit. Even though Kennedy Space Center is in Florida, they say that our Florida humidity and heat couldn’t be to blame, because they tested positive for the mold back in Houston, TX where it came from originally. However, the test results were received when the cargo was already in Florida. It just goes to show how pervasive and sneaky mold can be. It will grow wherever it is given the chance, and it will always find a way if the conditions are ideal.
Even the genius scientists at NASA know that mold is not something you want to mess with. They know that black mold is harmful to your health, and they don’t want to expose the important scientists and astronauts who work on the space station to this substance. Mold could even grow in space, we here at iMold proudly serve the communities of Naples, Marco Island, Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Cape Coral, Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda in Florida…but if NASA needs us, we just might need to prepare for a voyage to outer space!
