      I think it could! We could use radiation-resistant microbes to help us mine planets for minerals, we could use them for food and maybe even build stuff out of them! We could also genetically enhance them to be able to adapt even better to extreme environments such as the surfaces of other planets! It might sound like science fiction, but it’s all possible 😀
