Water Bear returns to life after thirty years buried in ice in Antarctica


(Henry Stoddard) #1

It is reported in the Washington Post that a baby bear that was frozen over thirty years ago in Antarctica has been revived!
I find that unbelievable. I had a friend that was mountain climbing thirty years ago and fell. His body was never found. I wonder if he could come back. Have any of you read this article? I was trying to get everyone to read the article. No one did.

Polar bears do not live in the Antarctic, they live in the Arctic.

@gbrooks9, @Christy

I agree with you both completely; however, this was not a polar bear. It was a water bear. I never said it was a polar bear. I would advise everyone to read the article before making a comment. I know where polar bears live. Please refer to the article. We should read the article before commenting. I will alter the title so that there will be no misunderstanding. The title of the article is: This crazy creature just returned from the dead after 30 years encased in ice. I feel I am owed a like too. I gave one to Roger.

Your brother in Jesus,

Charles :laughing:

Do you have a link to the article?

@Relates,@gbrooks9,@Christy

I usually do not use links since I get the new article on MSN. I could be that no one has the article on MSN. Here is the link:

Has anyone seen the article yet? I hope you are able to find it. I find it interesting. It had an egg with it, and it hatched.

I’ll have to tell my son. He has been fascinated with tardigrades ever since they were featured in a Science Friday link here. I couldn’t get your msn link to work, but this one does. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/02/18/this-crazy-creature-just-returned-from-the-dead-after-30-years-encased-in-ice/

Thanks, Christy. I liked the article. I am glad that your son is interested in such things. Do I see in him a future scientist? I hope it will be a medical doctor.

Your brother in Christ,

If the link I gave does not work, Christy has supplied the following:

I hope I typed the link correctly. We should thank Christy for this link.

Your friend,

Aside from the fact that “Water Bears” are very tiny insects … rather than bears … they actually have survived much more bizarre treatments than frozen for 30 years.

They have been dehydrated and sent into space … and survived…

I am aware of that; however, I still find it very interesting. Why did I just say bears? Perhaps to make interest. Have a nice evening, George. :grinning:
