World’s Oldest Water Found in Earth’s Crust

There’s more of it than was thought deep in the earth’s crust. Scientists studying Canadian, South African and Scandinavian mines, respectively, have arrived at this discovery. There’s more of it than previously speculated (2.5 cubic miles), and it also has a bigger hydrogen content than previously thought. Estimated to be 2.7 billion years old, it’s said to be viscous and “very salty,” even saltier than the Dead Sea. It must taste terrible.
