The scientists mentioned in the below link have proposed
an experiment where lasers can be used to drive a
common cold virus into a quantum state of
The key to the experiment is that the critter be able to
survive in vacuum and be relatively small enough for the
-- thus, the scientists have proposed that a
waterbear might be an amenable subject as well.
With 200,000 applicants for the one way Mars Mission, one
would think we can find a few volunteers to wear a space
suit, and subject themselves to a slightly more powerful
laser: say the bright one that can shoot an ICBM out of the
sky. This is bound to be a would be a much more fun
experiment, and have the additional advantage of not
creating a common cold bug with quantum super powers.
