The article discusses the associations among microbes, swine influenza virus A (H1N1) and astronomical exploration. It is noted that several swine influenza viruses are caused by re-assortment and their genes which are composed of human and avian and swine virus genes. It stresses that the virus is still evolving and moving where its ultimate trajectory cannot be seen right away.
