Deep Plants

BBCnews is carrying this article detailing the discovery of plant material in recent Antartctic ice cores. Found more than two miles down, scientists think the material could be several million years old.

Sometimes science is just so damned cool.

Looks like it's arctic, rather. But definately reminiscent of the story about the antartctic (?) samples from the frozen lake that made the news recently. I think those were just microbes, tho.
