NY Times: killer mutant flesh-eating zombie kimchee in space.

OK…NY Times reports that the Koreans will take kimchee into space, .  This is not surprising.  But I do wonder about this line in the article:

Ordinary kimchi is teeming with microbes, like lactic acid bacteria, which help fermentation. On Earth they are harmless, but scientists feared they could turn dangerous in space if cosmic rays and other radiation cause them to mutate.

So, what are they worried about?  Killer mutant flesh-eating zombie kimchee?  Sounds like some bad 1950’s sci-fi movie.
