Despite the near-certainty of death for the tardigrades, NASA still prefers to do an inventory check of biological materials that are being sent on each mission to the lunar surface, according to Pratt. This isnít mandated by international law, but most space-faring nations adhere to this policy of planetary protection under guidelines established by an international group known as the Committee on Space Research. Those guidelines dictate how much biological material you can send into space based on where youíre going. And the Arch Mission Foundation denied Israel and the US a chance to do this when it added the tardigrades without telling anyone. ďTechnically, Iím the first space pirate,Ē Spivack tells Mashable.

This kind of stunt is an example of why Starfleet adopted the Prime Directive.  hockeygrin.gif
