Question # 75

X is a deadly, green, crystalline, extraterrestrial agent of indeterminate origin. It erodes the vessel walls of the vascular system, causing death by either triggering the body's coagulation response (resulting in the entire system clotting in a few seconds), or by cerebral hematomas (accompanied by dementia) if clotting is prevented. It evolves at a rapid rate, is spread by airborne transmission, and is extremely contagious.

X mutates with each growth cycle, changing its biologic properties. The scientists learn that X grows only within a narrow pH range; in a too-acid or too-basic growth medium, it will not multiply — X's pH range is 7.39–7.43, like that of human blood.

Scientists believe a military satellite, which was actually designed to capture upper-atmosphere microorganisms for bio-weapon exploitation, returned with X.
