Worms frozen in permafrost come back to life

Still Waters

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 scientists from four institutions in collaboration with Princetown University.

Some 300 prehistoric worms were analysed - and two ‘were shown to contain viable nematodes’.

‘After being defrosted, the nematodes showed signs of life,’ said a report today from Yakutia, the area where the worms were found.

‘They started moving and eating.’

Is this really a good idea what if they have some kind of hidden virus or bacteria that could be harmful to Modern Life?

Why is the discovery a good omen for the discovery of life forms on other worlds? Do they want to bring aliens to life?

The scientist have noticed that they squirm and howl at the moon, they are calling them wereworms.
