Radiodurans maximae is unique in it's kind. It diffuses water through it's cell membrane, which makes it's way to the white water stockpiles, which look similar to vacuole. In these white spheres, all the water gets stored. While passing through the white tubes that attach the water stockpiles with the red fusion chamber, the H²O gets broken into hydrogen, hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen gets diffused into the cytoplasm, and CO is released. After passing through the white tubular organelles, the two hydrogen atoms go into the red 'fusion chamber', called the isotoconvertor. They go deeper into the isotoconverter, where they get closer to the electromagnetic fields the mitochondria produce. The yellow mitochondria get their energy from decomposing material that this bacterium eats, while it is energy, it is worthless energy for the bacterium. This worthless energy gets stored into the mitochondria that use it for hydrogen fusion. After the 'cold' fusion, the helium atoms pass through a green tube, which diffuses the helium, and sends the energy toward the nucleus, which sends the energy to all the organelles.
Due to it's feeding habits, this bacterium can stand 10.000 Gy and temperatures of over 300 °C and reproduces slowly for a microbe.

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
