NOW ON SALE in the IPMM STORE!!
Here’s the backstory from Vidhya:
“In 1964 a scientist was doing climate change research. He wanted to study the width between tree rings to see the temperature at different times in history. He had ordered a special drill to take a core sample of a gnarled, old Great Basin Bristlecone Pine tree. He began twisting the drill into the tree, but it became too difficult to turn. Finally, the drill broke into the tree. The drill was a special order item, and the scientist needed it to finish his research. He found a district ranger nearby and the ranger tells him not to worry, “we’ll just cut down the tree.” He takes a big slab of the tree home and counts over 4, 800 rings. He learns that he had cut down the oldest living organism in the world.
