Here's the original scientific article:

Rather interesting that 46,000-ish years ago the areas that are now permafrost were warm enough to support round worm infestations in the soil. I wonder what other organisms we'll find in there.

Yeah, seen a fair share of disaster movies that started out like this. The worm would just keep on growing, and growing and growing..... Next thing you know, it becomes an armor plated planet eating monster that then burrows down to the core of the earth and starts to eat the planet's core. Only to be saved by some pre-teen that discovers the monster can be killed by strawberry flavored bubble gum.
