As global warming melts more and more Antarctic ice, ancient bacteria that had been trapped for hundreds of thousands of years are being released into the marine ecosystem.

The article quotes a scientist as saying that the bacteria is harmless to humans. Still, I couldn't help but think of this movie.

tommy, it will be interesting to see if bacteria will be found in the ice caps on Mars via NASAs Phoenix Mission.
