Bacteria microbes that are 10-06 meters long and freezing away on the bottom of the Arctic Ocean floor may actually thrive best in hot temperatures that would put the health of most human beings at extreme risk.  According to a new study, while these tiny bugs lie dormant now, they will likely wait for up to 100 million years (10+08) for things to heat up again.  Only then will they finally germinate.  Learn more at Discovery News by clicking here.
