The bug’s close relative have been previously spotted in Tanzania, where an outbreak of them killed infants. The bugs on the ISS aren’t deadly, but they could be harmful enough to hurt operations.

This relates to engineering because the ISS is a product of hard work. If these “space bugs” become dangerous, then all could be lost.
