San Francisco 49ers cheerleaders collect stadium microbes for Project MERCCURI, our citizen science research project.

Thanks to the San Francisco 49ers for enlisting the help of their cheerleaders (including Science Cheerleader, Tina) to collect microbes from the 49ers stadium!

One of the lucky samples collected will head to the International Space Station for a research project organized by Science Cheerleader, UC Davis, SciStarter, NanoRacks and Space Florida. Learn more about Project MERCCURI at SpaceMicrobes.org!
