Is there any living being immune to radiation?

Deinococcus radiodurans , a small bacterium, is the only living being capable of surviving a nuclear catastrophe . The bacterium was found in irradiated food, in granite from Antarctica and in sterilized medical instruments, as well as in the tanks of nuclear reactors.

Its genetic makeup has been sequenced by American scientists at the Institute for Genome Research. The collection of 3,100 genes found includes many that are copies of others so that the microorganism can repair damage to its genetic material (DNA). The redundancy of these recomposition genes is what allowed this bacterium to survive an experiment in which it was exposed to radiation of 1.5 million rads, more than 3,000 times the lethal dose for humans.
