"the researchers managed to collect thousands upon thousands of airborne microorganisms floating in the troposphere about 10 kilometers over the Caribbean, as well as the continental United States and the coast of California."
Ten km is about 35,000 feet, a comfortable cruising altitude for commercial aviation. It's not difficult to believe there are a lot of microorganisms floating around there.

"It's not difficult to believe there are a lot of microorganisms floating around there."
Yeah. Especially those that come from "blue ice".
