Scientists have discovered a new type of virus, the biggest they have ever seen, and it is 10 to hundreds of times bigger than any other known virus. Pandoraviruses are unlike any known virus because 93 percent of the genes don’t match any other virus known to man.

The virus has a massive DNA too, over 2,500 genes. When compared to other viruses that may have 13, that makes it one big virus. The question is: where does a virus like this come from?  Scientist where shocked to find such a virus and first labeled it ‘NLF’ or New Life Form. Some scientist now believes the virus came from Mars because they share very little with other known viruses on Earth. As scary as all that may sound, the good thing is the virus is not harmful to humans.
