Frozen in the ice for fifteen hundred years the organism has returned to life

People are very worried about their own mortality. But the discoveries of scientists show that the cold can save living organisms, and maybe even give us immortality. For example, researchers have recently been able to revive samples of moss that has lain in the Arctic for fifteen hundred years.
According to scientists, permafrost is a very stable environment. The moss in it is practically isolated from aggressive external factors. In addition, it has the ability to protect itself from the negative effects of ice crystals. As soon as the temperature drops, the plant drastically loses moisture and ice cannot injure it.
Not for the first time scientists manage to make the moss cells begin to divide again. Previously, they brought back to life a plant that had lain in the ice for at least 170 years. But 15 centuries is much more impressive result.
