Best Nap Ever: Rotifers Wake Up After 24,000 Years

This episode is brought to you by the song Like This — Patrick Olsen’s new single. It’s available now on all streaming services.https://streamlink.to/like-this

Tiny creatures called rotifers seem to have no problem continuing their lives after waking from a refreshing 24,000-year nap. And DNA samples from goats that lived 30,000 years ago tell us a bit about how humans were managing them back then.
