P.I.D. Radio 7/20/13: The Amazing Colossal Virus


BIOLOGISTS THIS week announced the discovery of a giant virus, up to ten times larger than most. The supersized virus, named Pandoravirus, is thought to be the biggest ever found.

Interestingly, researchers say that “only 6% of its genes resembled genes seen before in other organisms on Earth.”  Of course, one of the researchers added that means the virus — wait for it — may have come from another planet, such as Mars.

Also: Massacre in Afghanistan linked to anti-malarial drug; Vatican offers indulgences to followers of the Pope’s tweets; massive solar eruption shoots past Earth; Google Glass hacked for spies; and the NSA inserts its own code into Android OS — meaning 3/4 of all smart phones.

Note:  We won’t be able to produce new shows next week due to travel for the Prophecy Summit at Pikes Peak next weekend.  Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for updates from the conference.
