Research conducted into medicine on board the International Space Station could benefit people all over the world. On the other hand, the inaccessibility of the station gives scientists an unprecedented opportunity to carry out experiments banned on Earth that could lead to the end of civilization.
Medical experiments currently being conducted on the space station have the capacity to save the lives of billions of people throughout the world. For instance, living cells can be grown in an environment where they are not distorted by gravity perhaps leading to the development of treatments for cancer and other fatal diseases. Conversely, the International Space Station provides scientists with a secure location to develop killer bugs that could result in monstrous fatalities for populations targeted for eradication. For example 19,000 litres of concentrated Botulinum toxin, the amount Iraq admitted to having stockpiled after the Gulf War, is enough to wipe out the entire population of the world, three times over.
There is no evidence that scientists are experimenting with the offensive use of biological warfare (BW) also known as germ warfare in laboratories on the International Space Station but when several of the participating partners have a history of concealing their BW research perhaps it is time to check it out.
