In Tibetan glaciers, approx. 15,000 years oldviruses discovered. These viruses have survived to these days by being pretty well preserved for tens of thousands of years of ice. In the same glaciers, feathered rhino and huge wolf
Remains of extinct ancient creatures such as were also found.
But not everything found in these glaciers was dead. found in glaciers 40 thousand years old mold and 42 thousand year old roundworms, revived in a laboratory setting. This is both impressive and pretty scaryis a case.
Ancient creatures coming back to life
While examining these ancient creatures they found in Tibetan glaciers, scientists discovered that 40,000-year-old ancient mold and 42,000-year-old worms that they came back to life they were both excited and excited when they saw it. terrified. It means that these creatures are very well preserved and come back to life after all these years. history of our planet meant that we could learn better. But at the same time, more of these creatures may be on the glaciers and revive uncontrollably and return to humanity. antique viruses can infect.
In addition to these creatures, they are in the same glacial mass. 15,000-year-old viruses was also discovered. While some of the discovered viruses resemble the primitive forms of the viruses we know today, some are not at all. unknown new species.
Viruses carried by dust and gases in the air
According to the statement made by scientists, viruses were found in the environment during the formation of glaciers. gases and dusts may have been transported to glaciers. This shows that there were various dangerous viruses in the gases in the air at that time. In the light of this information, researchers can better understand the state of our planet at that time and can new species of creatures can make predictions about.
Lonnie Thompson of the research team said: We know very little about the viruses that lie beneath the glaciers waiting to be revealed. . which makes them dangerous” and expressed his concerns. that may occur in the near future due to global warming. new virus strains is still unknown how it will affect our planet.
Research is still ongoing about these viruses and the threats they may pose in the future.
