This is fascinating! Not surprising humans haven't made the list, though., the way we destroy ourselves, and the way we seem determined to bring down the rest of the planet with us...

If viruses are found on astroid samples, wouldn't they be the oldest living light year creature? I guess it is how you define life. Every atom of air we breathe has been breathed by some one/ some creature/planet since who knows.
all the more to respect the air we breathe. Keep it clean.

I knew bristlecone pine trees were ancient, but hadn't realized they were *that* old. I hope they're in a safe, protected place.
