Helium isotopes found in water samples provide a snapshot of what lies beneath the plateau and stimulate debate within the geosciences community.
Deep-ocean-dwelling microbes may hold keys to improved medical diagnostics and new drugs for fighting diseases. But we must search Earth’s most extreme habitats to find them.
Research on the habitat ranges of microorganisms in Yellowstone’s hot springs reveals an overlap between cyanobacteria and algae.
Two studies chart new territory for the fledgling deep-sea mining industry through advances in the identification and analysis of seafloor hydrothermal mounds.
Hydrothermal vents in the ocean emit 6000-year-old carbon. The likely source? Ocean crust.
Organic molecules on a Martian meteorite have fueled nearly 30 years of scientific debate. New evidence suggests they were formed by Martian processes, offering more support for a once habitable environment on the Red Planet.
In ultramafic, reducing environments, forming microbial proteins can actually release energy.
