It was mentioned that viable freeze dried bacteria was found floating in orbit
outer space from the release of toilet waste from the space station.
Bacteria usually absorb genes and chromosomes present in their food supply.
This means that human genetic material would be present in the freeze dried
bacteria. A comet could in principle pick this up and take it to another star
