The name is Horneckiae, Bacillus Horneckiae
Back in July 2007, Professor Kasthuri Venkateswaran and his group of American scientists of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) discovered a hitherto unknown species of bacillus. After investigating its genetic makeup, JPL has now arranged for the bacillus species to be registered in specialised databases as "Bacillus horneckiae". It is named after recently retired radiation biologist Dr Gerda Horneck of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR).
