Title: Great Bugs of Fire: Protein from Volcano-loving Bug Crystallized in Space
Url: http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/1998/msad16sep98...
Creator: Noever, David
Publisher: United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Description: This web article features the Archaea, an ancient branch of life commonly found living in extreme environments such as volcanic vents and hotsprings, and attempts of researchers aboard the Life and Microgravity Spacelab (LMS) to study these extreme microorganisms. The article includes discussion on the microbes' heat-tolerant enzymes, the origins of Archaea, the possibility of Archaea-like life forms on other planets, and scientists' continuing efforts to explore the biology and biotechnological benefits of these extreme microorganisms. The site also provides a section of references and further reading, and links to other research conducted aboard LMS, the Science@NASA homepage, and other useful websites.
