A Bacterium's Super Breathing Capability (VIDEO)

Here's a great little video put together by an NPR intern, Ilham Hassan about Geobiologist Kenneth Nealson and what he affectionately calls his bugs—bacteria. Nealson discovered the bacterium Shewanella oneidensis strain MR-1. Or just "MR-1" for short.

He found the microbe in Lake Oneida, back in 1987. He was studying the metal chemistry of the lake.

"We isolated the bacterium Shewanella oneidensis," he says. "It wasn't yet named. So we had to figure out what kind of bacteria it was and name the bacteria."

The bug was named after the lake and also after the microbiologist James Shewan. Nealson is quite modest about this significant accomplishment, but jokes with a smile, "Yes, I am considered to be Mr. Shewanella."
