Microbial Destinations: The Kansas Underground Salt Museum and the 250 Million Year Old Microbe

With all the excitement about the microbes found in Greenland that have been buried below two miles of ice for at least 120,000 years and have been revived in the laboratory, there is another living microbe that's supposedly 250 million years old.


Found in a Kansas salt mine and revived in 1998 by three scientists, this living microbial fossil was the source of much debate, and still is to the best of my knowledge.

If you are interested in these kinds of subjects I suggest viewing the following links:
