SCIENTISTS FIND UNIQUE MICROBES IN NORTHWEST HOT SPRINGS


The Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Scientists say the organisms are very similar to life as it might exist on Mars and other planets.

The one-celled organisms, known as Archaea, grow by consuming hydrogen that is produced by hot water reacting with bedrock 600 feet below the Beaverhead Mountains. They produce tiny amounts of methane as a byproduct of their metabolism.

Although types of Archaea have been found before, this community is unlike anything else on Earth. Details of the discovery appear in today’s issue of the Nature.

Microbes like these have been the subject of speculation for 30 years. But finding them was another matter. A team of seven government and university scientists found the microbes at the Lidy Hot Springs near the Idaho-Montana line.
