I'm going to reopen this thread Scientists Revive Tiny Worms Which Have Been Frozen For 42,000 Years
I hope the awakening of our regular members will be a rather more quick !! I am crossing my fingers
A group of scientists have successfully revived two species of worms they discovered suspended in an icy chunk of Siberian permafrost . The worms, known as nematodes had been frozen for up to 42,000 years, since a time when much of the planet was covered in ice – the Pleistocene age. The Russian scientists, who made the discovery, have confirmed the creatures are moving and eating again after being ‘dead’ for thousands and thousands of years ( ... ) Until now, the longest nematodes to have been dormant then revived, was 39 years, according to Science Alert .
