Your research team has found a prehistoric virus preserved in the permafrost and isolated it for study. After a late night working, you’re just closing up the lab when a sudden earthquake hits and breaks all the sample vials. Will you be able to destroy the virus before the vents open and unleash a deadly airborne plague? Lisa Winer shows how.

  22. Cottonwarrior September 13, 2017 at 8:26 am

    I am actually surprised I got the answer, but that is because I wrote the rules on a sheet of paper and paused at 1:01 because I didn't have a grid and so I got the answer

    This is extremely easy for people who completed the game Witness and other ted ed riddles because of the similarity of patterns.
