DNA on a rocket survives re-entry

German and Swiss researchers dotted a rocket's grooves and screw heads with fragments of genetic blueprints to see how they'd fare in situations that could've led to the appearance of life on Earth. What the experiment suggests is that even if the meteor's been scorched, that DNA can survive at higher temperatures than previously expected. #tech
