Only decades? Well that rules them out for being an agent of panspermia.




Maybe there are panspermic tardigrades experiencing time dilation due to near-light speed velocities.


It’s almost as if, when they come out of their suspension, these tardis have traveled through time!


Big deal. I do that on the weekends.


Were tardigrades the model for the alien race in “The Three-Body Problem”? I always wondered.
