Bacterium found under glacier reawakened after 120,000-year sleep

A tiny microbe found two miles under Greenland ice has been reawakened from a 120,000-year sleep. Researchers coaxed the dormant frozen microbes, back to life by carefully warming the ice samples containing them over a period of 11-and-a-half months.
