New Viruses Found in Melting Glaciers



Well, this is a bit scary...


Researchers have discovered several viruses that have been trapped in glaciers.


The discovery was made at an ice cap that is in central Asia.


Some of the viruses discovered are unknown to us today.


As time goes on and glaciers melt, some of these viruses may escape and become active once again.


At one point, some of these viruses were infectious.
