Plastica dove non te lo aspetti

Fibre plastiche trovate in un piccolo crostaceo che vive in fondo al mare. È il caso di dire che abbiamo toccato il fondo.

Alan Jamieson remembers seeing it for the first time: a small, black fiber floating in a tube of liquid. It resembled a hair, but when Jamieson examined it under a microscope, he realized that the fiber was clearly synthetic—a piece of plastic. And worryingly, his student Lauren Brooks had pulled it from the gut of a small crustacean living in one of the deepest parts of the ocean.
