It is conjectured that the two closed bosonic string theories, type 0A and type 0B, correspond to certain supersymmetry breaking orbifold compactifications of M-theory. Various implications of this conjecture are discussed, in particular the behaviour of the tachyon at strong coupling and the existence of non-perturbative fermionic states in type 0A. The latter are shown to correspond to bound states of type 0A D-particles, thus providing further evidence for the conjecture. We also give a comprehensive description of the various type 0 closed and open string theories.
