Survival and post-exposure analysis. a Survival rate of LEO exposed and ground control cells based on colony forming units counting. b OD600 measurements of exposed and control cells at t0 and after 2 h of recovery in complex medium. cf Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images showing the upper surface of multi-layers of dehydrated cells of D. radiodurans deposited on aluminum plates. c, e SEM images of D. radiodurans cells exposed to LEO in Tanpopo mission. d, f SEM images of ground control cells of D. radiodurans. e, f Higher magnification SEM images displaying upper surface of multi-layers of dehydrated cells of D. radiodurans. Error bars show the error-represented standard deviation, respectively, of n = 3 biological replicates
