The Toughest Things On Earth: Tardigrades

Tardigrades are microscopic animals with two cool nicknames β€” the water bear and the moss piglet.

They are segmented and reach a maximum length of a millimeter, maybe a millimeter and a half.

Water bears are as indestructible as they are tiny.

They've been known to survive in extreme temperatures, and they shrug off extreme doses of radiation.

According to Mother Nature Network, they even laugh in the face of the silent vacuum of space itself.
