It was discovered that thousands of bears were riding on the moon probe that crashed on the moon, and there is a possibility that it will breed on the moon
Stag beetles are known as extremely small animals with tremendous vitality that can withstand extreme dry conditions, low-temperature environments near absolute zero, high radiation doses and vacuum conditions. It turned out that such a bug was riding on a lunar probe that collided with the moon, and it has become a topic that 'perhaps the bug may breed on the moon.'

In February 2019, Israel's private space development organization, SpaceIL , launched the Beresheet lander, a lunar explorer aimed at the first private lunar landing. Until the lunar orbit entered, it was successful and it was in the stage of landing, but on April 11, 2019, Beresheet lander failed to land due to engine trouble. I hit the moon.
Beresheet Lander is communicating with the earth until just before the crash, and the 'last photo' reflecting the moon and the dark universe can be seen from the following article.

At such Beresheet Lander, an archive called ' Lunar Library ' was installed by the ' Arch Mission Foundation ', an organization trying to back up the data of the earth's civilization, flora and fauna, and send it to space as a library.
The Arch Mission Foundation sends records of earth civilization to stars in the solar system, so that even if the earth collapses and some stars in the solar system disappear, aliens will find Arch Mission Foundation data remaining on some stars Explains the possibility. The archive included English Wikipedia pages, human DNA samples, and many books. In addition, Lunar Library seems to have stored 'thousands of spider bugs' in a dry state as well as data.
Beetles that can endure not only in many places on the earth but also in outer space, when they become dry, their tissues shrink and stop metabolism, so they go to sleep. Beetles that are said to be able to survive for several decades without water and food are said to be able to survive for at least 5 years even in extremely dry conditions, so that they can be revived even after Beresheet Lander collides with the moon It is said that the probability of being alive is very high.
'The best scenario is that the Lunar Library jumps out of Beresheet Lander during a collision and is around the point of impact,' said Nova Spivack, co-founder of the Arch Mission Foundation. Dry caterpillars need water to resuscitate, and it is unlikely that the moon's ice will melt and resuscitate them and maintain a viable environment. Nevertheless, given the viability of the viviparous beetles, the probability of a viviparous colony breeding on the moon is not zero.
