Plants Revived After 1500 Years of Freeze

From the BBC:

British scientists have successfully revived mosses that have been frozen under the Antarctic ice for 1,500 years.

The researchers thawed out the ancient vegetation and were surprised to see new shoots rapidly appear.

While bacteria of a similar ageĀ have been recovered before, the scientists say these are the oldest plants to be brought back to life.
