A team of scientist were digging up salt in Death Valley found not quite what they were expecting, as in, usual salt. What was found is a 34,000 year old bacteria trapped inside the salt particles. The interesting thing is, they are ALIVE! Yes, after 34,000 years, they are still alive. What led to that is the constant supply of algae and the fact that they were completely sealed away in those “time capsules”. And the more interesting thing is, after the bacteria were carefully “melted out” of the salt particles, they started to reproduce again!
Bizarre thing, indeed.
