Bdelloid rotifers are multicellular animals so small you need a microscope to see them.

So what? Its been provable time and time again that you can freeze any animal at -273 degrees Celsius and it would be 0K.

I hope they don't have any viruses.

We could be looking at the first potential transplant
of life from earth to mars... Certainly would stand
a better chance than most other candidates.

I do not feel comfortable with science reanimating things that have been dead/frozen for millennia. Have these people NEVER been to the movies?

Well Science isn't doing it like Man in general is through Global warming and the massive abuses happening in places like Russia. Have you ever seen what they are doing to uncover frozen carcasses in the melting tundra?

Wait, we don't yet know what other species will emerge from the frozen tundra as it melts. This could be a great horror film.

Danni. I have found that if you can think of it then it's probably been done by Hollywood.

The Thaw (2009)
A research expedition to the Arctic discovers that a melting polar ice cap has released a deadly prehistoric parasite.

"Wait, we don't yet know what other species will emerge from the frozen tundra as it melts. This could be a great horror film."

Actually 'twas done back in the 70s in a "classic" Doctor Who episode:

Seeds of Doom (1976)

Shout out to my good buddy Dario who got me into the Tom Baker incarnation back in college (I grew up with David Tennant so it was a bit jarring at first). Definitely waaaay before my time but the stories are pretty good and the special effects hilariously bad and the set and costume design campy as hell. In Seeds of Doom the monster scenes are hilarious. Good stuff to smoke a bowl to.

Has a connection been made yet between the recent increase of UAP activity and Bdelloid reanimation? It can't be coincidence that these events are all occurring at the same time.
