Ice Age flower blossoms again!

This is really cool. Imagine this, what if you freeze the seeds of a plant and keep it frozen for 30,000 years. Now take them out and plant them. Will they grow?

Surprisingly some scientists have recently done this, “They found the fruit of an ancient plant that had been frozen underground in Siberia — a region covering central and eastern Russia — for about 31,800 years. Using pieces of the fruit, the scientists grew plants in a lab. The new blooms have delicate white petals. They are also the oldest flowering plants that researchers have ever revived from a deep freeze.” PNAS reported

May be some day we can also regenerate dinosaurs from the frozen eggs :)
