A moment for microbes

All my latest posts have been lengthy, so today I’m giving a moment to microbes:

In a gram of soil there may be more than 10,000 species of bacteria.

There can be about a million microbes per cubic centimetre of sea water.

I dimly remember being told these things repeatedly before reading them again here, but something so boggling is easily forgotten: life jostling in all corners.
