that last pic looks like the clear tentacle coming from Donnie Darko's chest in the movie......just goes to further my girlfriends theory that mushrooms are extra-planear in nature. I am not showing these to her.......

thanks for all the nice comments

Umm TwentyEyes, not to further promote your girlfriends theory, but a friend of mine claims spores have been found in space! Now I don't have a source, or any detail, but this guy is usually pretty reliable. Maybe I should hit google and see if the net has anything on it. After all, if it's on the internet, it must me true!

Very nice!
You should post more of your microscopy work!
It's not often you see good pics of spores and hyphae on the boards!

Ravn- yeah ever since she learned about sporulating creatures in school she has been silly about it. she thinks the hobby is cool but spores freak here out

I get a kick out of it but she insists they are not of this world. She will be a bigger fan of shrooms once she has tasted their flesh.....woo ha ha ha ha

the only spores found so far in space have been from right here on earth, ones that have risen so high in the atmosphere they've floated away [microscopic particles aren't effected much by gravity].
and very few can survive the long term exposure to gamma rays. there is one species known, however, that can survive even a near nuclear blast, it's so good at repairing its' dna. but no one knows how it'd fare on a 100,000 year voyage to a nearby star system. the best odds would be for spores encased in a large comet or planetoid, where it'd be somewhat shielded from background radiation.

what you need is a big enough impact here on earth's to splash some of earth's crust out into deep space, with enough velocity to escape the solar system. that would necessitate a pretty violent impact with pretty dismal consequences for the rest of us. but given that such events do occur from time to time, some theorize that biologic material from earth may very well have already seeded the local area.
or perhaps even the reverse occured, and earth itself acquired life from debris landing here from another source having undergone a similar impact eons ago.
who knows ?
anything seems possible.

comets are responsible for bringing life to this planet:

true.. but no matter what brought life materials to earth, it is accepted as fact that all those materials are created from the lifcycle of stars.. regardless of how the material got here, we are all starchildren :)
