It will not be so great when this bacterium breaks out of its reactor vessel and spreads through the environment, and nothing we have can kill it.

Pseudomonas species. Widespread, gram negative environmental bacteria. Some can be pathogenic - Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause urine and wound infections.

Many others found in soil, plant pathogens etc.
