Microbiology Video: "We owe them our very lives!"

It is no secret that many readers of this blog are awestruck by the universality, diversity, and significance of microbes. Indeed, Earth is a “microbial planet” in the sense that the oldest (over 3.8 billion years ago) and most abundant forms of life are the ones too small to be seen by the unaided eye. Even more powerful is the quote in the video that "We owe them (bacteria) our very lives".

If you ever want to share those sentiments with friends, family, students, colleagues, or heck, politicians - then this new HD cinematic video is a perfectly simple introduction. Check it out….it is worth the four short minutes and then some.
