"Tardigrades are microscopic animals that live in moss and the muddy sand on beaches. They can survive high temperatures, freezing, and crushing pressures by drying themselves up into a little hard ball, called a tun. Stick a tun in water and [...] it will rehydrate and regenerate back into a tardigrade. [...] It may well be the most adorable genome on Earth."
