    The type reported by the guy from Finland a few years ago?

    Is there anything recent?


    I'd be skeptical. Some of the work has been shown to be artifact.


    Reports of things that are impossible usually are wrong. Or, as Carl
    Sagan said, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. It is
    important to understand why nanobacteria are considered impossible
    (inconsistent with current understanding of how a cell is made). Thus
    if there is something there, it would be quite exciting, but it needs
    strong proof/explanation.

    Yes, I've seen some of those articles. The authors of the original
    study formed a company called Nanobac Labs in Tampa, Florida (where I
    currently live). They went public last spring [nnbp.pk].

    Interesting. Thanks.

    I see no indication that they have established any more legitimacy for
    nanobacteria in the last couple of years.

    Time will tell. But i would not invest in them.
