Defrosting Worms

Scientists have defrosted and revived ancient worms frozen in permafrost.  While this is fascinating from a cryogenics perspective, I should like to point out that it could also release invasive species or diseases that the modern world cannot tolerate.  :/

Reading science news makes me wish that science fiction could be a required course in the training of scientists.  It would save us so many headaches.
