Nor is that bacterium a single find. It is also not excluded that the microorganism arrived much later in the salt sample. Especially since the kind of today's little or no different. The researchers must therefore feverishly search for further evidence. Never before have you encountered such an old life, even though bacteria are found in the most extreme locations. Whether in the boiling water of hot springs or in the eternal ice of the Arctic, even in radioactive waste, it lives well - at a microscopically low level anyway. Even in the belly of a 25 million year old bee - preserved in a piece of amber - they have already survived.
