Extremophiles in Kamchatka Hot Springs

Follow scientists in this excellent interactive website looking for life in the seemingly hostile hot springs of the Russian Far East. There are four units to explore: getting to Kamchatka by helicopter, following the scientists into the laboratory to collect data, find out why these studies help us understand the first signs of life on Earth, and find out how microbes leave their mark for millenia. Maps, video, slideshows, and activities included. Requires Flash plug-in. [Source: Exploratorium (NASA/NSF/Moore)]
