An internet of microbes straddling the cosmos.

Exchanges of information analogous to a global internet have been known to take place between biological systems on the Earth ranging from bacteria and viruses to plants and animals. We argue that this process can be extended to include a cosmic biosphere within which evolution would seem to be intimately interlinked across astronomical, perhaps cosmological distance scales. Comets and interstellar dust, argued to have a bacterial/viral component, could be involved in establishing these links.
