With respect to the original question about the survival of
viruses in space, I have two references which may be of interest.
Both are from the journal Advances in Space Research, Volume 12,
Number 4:  Survival rates of some terrestrial microorganisms under
simulated space conditions (Koike et al., 1991); and Survival in
extreme dryness and DNA single-strand breaks (Dose et al., 1991).
