The Oldest Water on Earth Tastes Very Bad
Last month, some scientists collected water from deep inside the Earth that may have been isolated for more than 2 billion years!! That’s half the age of Earth.
So of course, being a scientist, Barbara Lollar (one of the paper’s authors) had to taste it. It was not delicious (and luckily non-toxic). Instead, it was so salty that it had the consistency of maple syrup.
