Scientists to reanimate 30,000 year old giant virus

3 posts in this topic

Because what could go wrong...right? This is quite possibly the dumbest idea I've heard in awhile. But apparently this isn't the first virus they've found frozen in Siberia.

 

Scientists said they will reanimate a 30,000-year-old giant virus unearthed in the frozen wastelands of Siberia, and warned climate change may awaken dangerous microscopic pathogens.

Before waking it up, researchers will have to verify that the bug cannot cause animal or human disease.

To qualify as a "giant", a virus has to be longer than half a micron, a thousandth of a millimetre (0.00002 of an inch).
