80,000 year old tree

But wait! The earth itself — and probably even the whole universe — are only supposed to be about 6,000 years old, aren’t they? Well, so much for that theory.

Yesterday we showed the most massive tree known, so I thought this was an appropriate follow-up.

Hank Green sounds like a preacher, but he apparently isn’t. Regardless, his videos are interesting and informative. I haven’t seen them all, but the ones I have seen teach real science, too. Check him out on Youtube as SciShow.
