How secure is the seal? If even the smallest amount of outside air can get in the whole thing is a waste of time. The material the cork is made from may even be permeable to some degree.

It appears to be made of some sort of gel, or rubber so my guess it it's been mold fitted and it pretty damn secure.

I think even if it's semi-permeable, the experiment is still valid. I doubt the water vapor in the air (especially the small amount that actually gets in) will be enough to support the ecosystem. But meh, I could be wrong.

Since he's spent 40 fucking years on it, I'd hope it's pretty damn secure.

"it had been watered only once in that time"

hurrrr

That's not an answer to the question. being "watered" is different than having been tainted in an unknown way (Seal Leak, Cork Material Leak, Etc).

Oh okay, I didn't realize you don't have to take the top off to put more water inside....

As silasdg said, there is water in the air, humdiy factors tells you how much. If air gets in and cools it could form dew. So yes, water could get in without watering.

The humidity level inside the bottle is higher than any ecosystem that the bottle would be in. Water would be escaping, not entering.

Yeah the amount of water (or rather moisture) he's talking about is simply whats in the air.

No biggie.
