It sounds like the plot from a cheese science fiction film: Scientists unearth something that’s been buried in the frozen ground of the Arctic for tens of thousands of years and decide to heat it up a bit. The monster stirs because its cells slowly wake up from their long stasis. As time passes, the creature wakes up, having time-traveled 24,000 years thanks to the body’s ability to shut down itself after temperatures attained a particular low. It sounds too incredible to be accurate, but it’s.
In a new paper published in Current Biology, researchers reveal that their discovery of a microscopic animal frozen in the Arctic permafrost for an estimated 24,00 decades. The monster, which could have dwelt in water throughout its previous life, was restored as the soil thawed. The discovery is incredibly important not simply for the ongoing analysis of animals found frozen in time here on Earth.
