    Tardigrades -- also known as "waterbears" and "moss piglets" -- are tiny eight-legged creatures with a startling ability to survive in extreme environments by entering a hibernation-like trance. Scientists have found the critters living beneath glaciers and in boiling springs, and some of them survived being exposed to the vacuum of outer space for 10 days.
