    If the ISS falls to Earth with these bacteria onboard is there any health risk?

    ^^ if ISS comes back it will do so in heaps of molten and burning metal, no bacteria can survive reentry.

    I hope so. When Columbia broke up, I think a box of worms survived. The smaller something is, the tougher…panspermia.

    If a tarantula falls, it will almost certainly be injured…as opposed to tiny spiders that can use a thread of silk as a streamer recovery/sky sail.

    stuff comes back from ISS all the time. There's no way they could have kept the bacteria from returning.
