Bad justifications for Artistic License Biology/Chemistry. There is no particular law stating that bacteria (especially alien bacteria of unknown biology) cannot break down metal. Alien bacteria may have novel biochemistry available to them. Moreover, the superconductor's structure is never explicitly stated in the novel—it may or may not be metal, as there exist many conductive materials (including organic polymers). All biology/chemistry in the book is, to my knowledge, plausible and does not constitute artistic license with what we currently know. Also it was a mold, not bacteria.

Bad justifications for Artistic License Biology/Chemistry. There are no particular laws that bacteria (especially that which is alien and of unknown biology) cannot break down metal. Alien bacteria may have novel biochemistry. Moreover, the superconductor's structure is never explicitly stated in the novel, and there are in fact organic polymers which can conduct electricity. All biology and chemistry in the book is, to my knowledge, plausible, which does not constitute taking artistic license with what we currently know.
