new Delhi: Scientists never cease to amaze, whether for better or for worse. What was the year that Coronavirus The worst year is due to the epidemic, in the same year, scientists have done it which is beyond the thinking of the people. A team from Japan’s Agency for Marine Earth Science and Technology has successfully revived those microorganisms lying on the ocean surface that belong to the dinosaur era.
Food and breeding
When the microorganisms were revived, they were able to take food as well as breed. Microorganisms can live for millions of years even without food or oxygen and sometimes for this reason they are considered the most primitive species of this planet. Because of these characteristics, scientists successfully brought them back to life under laboratory conditions.
To achieve this goal, scientists analyzed sediment samples from 100 million years ago that lay dormant on the surface of the South Pacific Ocean. The least nutrients are found in this area. Only then the results that have been received are shocking because this area cannot sustain life for so long. After trying to hatch all these microorganisms, almost all of them returned back to their lives.
Lead author of the study, Yuki Morono, said that after getting the results, he was skeptical about his discoveries. Many people thought that it could be due to some mistake or an experiment failed. Although it was not some of these, they successfully brought microorganisms back from their deep slumber. According to Morona, ‘Now we know that there is no age limit for organisms in the biosphere living on the ocean surface.’
These microorganisms were discovered by drilling holes in the sea surface, which opened a hole in the oldest foothills. According to another author of this study, ‘Despite having no food, there are still living organisms and they can awaken, develop and breed.’
He further said that but how did microorganisms survive for so long? Oxygen! Due to the oxygen trapped in the sediment, these microorganisms can live for millions of years without need of anything else. Microorganisms living on the sea surface require less oxygen than those living on the surface.
However, this was not an ideal condition for sustaining life, hence these results are very surprising for scientists. Earlier studies have shown that bacteria can live in the most inaccessible places in the world, even in areas where there is a lack of oxygen.
