Hey "Open Science" people and folks interested in Fungus...
A few months ago we got ahold of some very rare and insider information about fungal infestations on board MIR the International Space Station, and the Apollo Missions. It turns out, the reason we let MIR burn up in the atmosphere was to protect our ecosystem from being exposed to a mold species that had mutated during its time in space. This super-fungus became more aggressive and could etch glass, eat rubber insulation, and grow four times as fast as fungus does on earth. Crazy, right?
Anyway, my family and I spent the last five months or so compiling this information into a 45-minute documentary. This documentary is just now starting to make the rounds in the microbiology world. It's been screened privately for groups of microbiologists and industry professionals.
If enough people are interested, I can arrange a screening at PS1 sometime in the next week or so. I was looking at October 17 at 7pm.
Here is the trailer for the film:
If this kind of thing is up your alley, we hope to see you there!
