From Such Humble Beginnings...

Ron gets a no-prize shaped like a dirt pile for bringing us news of the discovery of the oldest fossils yet found. They're only impressive when you realize how old they are:

Odd-shaped mounds of dirt in Australia turn out to be fossils of the oldest life on Earth, created by billions of microbes more than three billion years ago, scientists say in a new report.

The discovery not only helps scientists who study ancient life on Earth, but also those who are looking for signs of life on Mars.
