The quest to delay aging and look younger is as old as civilization itself

Anoxycalyx Joubini didn’t survive nearly 15000 years without some attacks from predators, the most of common of which is the seastar Acodontaster conspicuus, which accumulate in bunches on the sponge and slowly kill it.
The sponge and its characteristics are studied with the help of a SCINI ROV—a Submersible Capable of under Ice Navigation and Imaging Remotely Operated Vehicle.
The coordinates listed lead to the McMurdo research station, where studies of the sponge and other underwater fauna are carried out. The sponges themselves are located all across McMurdo Sound.
