These questions and other raised by the discovery of this community will provide research avenues for the future.
Another interesting fact about these giant bacteria is that their large filamentous morphology as well as their multicellular nature is similar to fossils of early life on Earth.
The pressure inside is so great that the questions and experiences come out fast and strong, and they spew in every direction.
It has been hypothesized in recent decades that the study of organisms from light and oxygen deficient environments could provide insight into the evolutionary history of early life on Earth.
Ancient seas, almost universally accepted as the cradle of life on Earth, were highly deficient in oxygen and lacked the same light regimes that we observe on Earth today.
These fossils were previously described as photosynthetic , but may now have to be re-examined in light of this new Census of Marine Life discovery.
The fact that the dating of the fossils did not match the emergence of an oxygen rich atmosphere in Earth's history suggests that they may actually be fossils of bacteria, similar to those that make up this newly discovered community.
Shake that bottle for thirty seconds before removing the top and you’ll have a much more intense experience.
Talking with people about relationships with loved ones in the military is like opening a bottle that has been violently shaken.
