Deena Grady, No, it's the overuse of antibiotics in recent years that mean they're becoming less effective and have led to the emergence of "superbugs". There are strains of bacteria that have developed resistance to many different types of antibiotics. Being in the absence of gravity makes them easier to develope resistance.
