Tardigrades are a group of microscopic animals that are renowned for their ability to survive a number of extreme stresses, some of the things that tardigrades can survive include being dried out, being frozen and being heated up past the boiling point of water. They can survive thousands of times as much radiation as we can and they can go for days or weeks with little or no oxygen.
