HOTSPOTS-EXTREME
$6.95
Scientists are on a hunt for microbial wonders - tiny creatures that live comfortably in extremes of temperature, pressure, salinity, and other conditions that would cause most living organisms to croak. And they're finding them in lots of unlikely places - kilometers deep in rock, on the seafloor, and in the hot springs at Yellowstone National Park. Called "extremophiles," these organisms produce unique enzymes that have proven useful in everything from solving crimes to cleaning dirty jeans. Even more exciting, these microbial wonders are helping scientists better understand the origin of life on Earth, and if it could exist on other planets and moons.
