yes.. great article... tissue culture really.. they found a bit that would revive... also interesting is they this week got down to an under antartica ice cap pond.. some two miles deep.. it ha been covered and cut off 400,000 years ago.. wonder what new/old life they will discover there.. maybe I can find a link to it.. ok...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Vostok

they will be reviving some old stuff from under there...
