    Yooo a tardigrade those things that could theoretically be aliens Edit: yes tardigrades are immortal Except from age They can live a few days floating in space for god sake Soooo The only way I know to kill one is just to throw in space for a week or something Or starve it to death Or get eaten Huh.... Well they can’t be “physically” killed but there certainly ways to kill them Edit: oh yeah I have a phew theories about them The ones on earth are not aliens but other planets have the same species but a little different Or number 2 Maybe a chunk of Pluto exploded and there was like 1000,000,000 tardigrades on the meteor and it was the meteor that killed the dinosaurs Idk it’s possible

    Hey guys, long time watcher with my kids here. I have a comment for Mark that applies to this video and the "Venomous Octopus Defends the Reef!" video. On both occasions you made brief comments about the feature creature possibly being an alien or otherwise coming from space. Considering that a large part of your audience is young and trust you for accurate information I think that you do them a disservice by even mentioning such an extraordinary claim that is obviously false without stating so. Both organisms in question have had their genom sequenced and both have genes that are identicle to many other species. Thank you and keep up the great work.
