The likelihood of auto-and-ancillary migration of viable micro-organisms is discussed. Experiments are suggested to determine the survival potentials of microorganisms under various space conditions, to establish the extent to which space sterilization of interplanetary instrument probes and other space vehicles may be relied upon to prevent the infecting of other celestial bodies, or the infecting of the earth with alien life by returning probes, and to determine whether further sterilization procedures would be required.
