Worms frozen in permafrost for up to 42,000 years come back to life
By The Siberian Times reporter

Nematodes moving and eating again for the first time since the Pleistocene age in major scientific breakthrough, say experts.
Awake after 42,000 years... Picture: The Siberian Times
The roundworms from two areas of Siberia came back to life in Petri dishes, says a new scientific study.
‘We have obtained the first data demonstrating the capability of multicellular organisms for longterm cryobiosis in permafrost deposits of the Arctic,’ states a report from Russian

OK scientists, do you want super viruses? Because this is how you get super viruses.

All joking aside, I do wonder the possible ramifications from things like this.

Makes me wonder of much of their cognitive functions are intact?

Can they reproduce?

It's not likely they'd still be able to solve differential equations.

Wouldn't have to have anything to do with scientists.

Reports coming out all the time about permafrost melting.

The warmer earth gets the more stuff melts the greater chance of some long dormant super virus wiping us out.

Being from Siberia, I'm placing my bet on White Walkers.

You need to finish the complete title.

"Worms frozen in permafrost for up to 42,000 years come back to life, looks at chin beards and man-buns, goes back to sleep."

But seriously.

Zombies.

Wow they might be on to something with that brain freezing thing..

Before this thread i would have said this was impossible.

Maybe only partially.

Plague worthy for consideration.

Just wonder if the predators for said nematodes will come back to life as well. Imagine if there are viruses, bacteria, or other microbes getting back into circulation. Could cause a plague of ridiculous proportions. Just something to think about.

I bet this is good news for cryogenic research. Maybe Demolition Man is more prophetic a movie than it let on.

I suppose that would be enough, prove ability, integral to cognition. But, as the French may say, I don't know if it's "la place" for me to say how the Russians should do this, as they may opt to simply ask the worms to comment on the Hegelian Dialectic. But any such a test, demonstration, would not afford the worms a lot of wiggle room.

Found some additional confirmation of the story on Fox News website


Apparently some scientists from Princeton were involved with the project as well:

The research was conducted by teams from multiple Russian institutions as well as Princeton University in New Jersey.

Nothing bad is gonna come from thawing these things out...….said the first guy ate by said things.

I'm surprised this is new. The permafrost has been melting for over 11,000 years exposing the same material.

I'd think if there were any danger, it would have been a problem during the last 11,000 years since the melt started.
