I can barely keep a cactus alive and these guys got frozen plant cells to grow into a viable plant that can procreate. I can't imagine all the hard work it must have taken to accomplish this feat. The implications are fantastic too. How amazing!!! I can barely keep a cactus alive and these guys got frozen plant cells to grow into a viable plant that can procreate.

A squirrel buried the seed in a shallow hole during the summer when a foot or two of the surface thaws. Thousands of years of sedimentation buried the site after that.

They took CELLS not SEEDS and cloned them into a similar species alive today to get the end-resulting plant ... The real wonder here is not the cloning - that's very common - but that they found viable tissue to use from 30K yrs ago. Just enjoy the pictures. Remember, they didn't plant a 30K yr-old seed and then grew it - much more complicated.

Compared to the rest of the world the US slides downhill a little more every year in math and science and yet we continue to give superstition and iron age myths equal or higher credence as empirical evidence. In many ways the US deserves to fail. @Arf40 – I would say that even sadder is how much they are pandered to in politics and education.

And I love when the young earthers come out on comment areas...I just crack up at some of the silly things these people say. What's really funny (or sad, depending on how you want to look at it) is that they actually believe the planet, in fact the whole universe, is just 6,000 years old! Neat article.
