It isn't yet possible to look at bacteria coming from space, he said.
It's well known that we humans carry a rich ecology with us - there are billions of microbes swarming all over you right this second - but the way microbes are transferred into the places we live and work is proving a rich area of study.
The research demonstrates how the ISS is not too different from the average home, at least in terms of its microbial community.
Getting to explore space sounds pretty darn cool, but the experience comes with many sacrifices. "So it is probably no more or less gross than your living room".
At present the batch is on a commercial supply ship and pulled out the flatbread, tomato sauce, cheese, pepperoni, olives, olive oil, anchovy paste and pesto in order to celebrate the first ever cosmic pizza party with much grandeur and zeal.
Jenna Lang, former postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis and lead author on the study, agreed.
The samples for Coil's paper were collected in 2014 as part of the citizen science program Project MERCCURI which was conceived by a group of National Football League and National Basketball Association cheerleaders who are also scientists and engineers. But in general, they're nice, mundane bacterial roommates.
"Studying the microbial diversity on the ISS is not only of relevance to space exploration but also serves as an important comparison to buildings on Earth because the ISS has many novel features, such as limited influx of microbes", he said.
