You're welcome. I personally find this story fascinating, not so much for the sensational bent ... but for the communications and information storage implications. Those are really 'mind blowing', at least they seem so to me! Apparently not only could information be preserved and transmitted almost infinitely, but it could be provided with a 'dehydrated retrieval and display system', too. Remarkable things, micro-organisms...and wonderful we get to share their world with them for such an awe inspiring and delightful time.
