در این مقاله با ده محلی که زندگی در آنها نباید وجود داشته باشد، اما وجود دارد ... آشنا میشوید در قسمت نظرات می توانید چکیده متن را برای دوستانتان به فارسی بنویسید. 10. Yellowstone’s Hot Springs
The Yellowstone hot springs are near the boiling point of water and acidic enough to dissolve nails. But some microbes thrive there, and the pigments they produce give the springs vivid, otherworldly colors.
9. In Bodies Below the Freezing Point of Water
The coldest sustained body temperature in a mammal is about 27 degrees Fahrenheit, measured in Arctic ground squirrels.
8. Entirely Alone
At the bottom of an almost two-mile-deep South African gold mine. There,CandidatusDesulforudisaudaxviator is all there is. Thisspecies of bacteria, one of the deepest ever found, lives at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit, fixes its own nitrogen, and eats sulfate-all in complete isolation.
7. The Galapagos Islands Everything that lives on the Galapagos Islands now flew in on the wind, rode a freak current, or floated on a raft of vegetation.
6. Acidic Mine Drainage (and Runners-Up)
After the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island, the clean-up crew was surprised to find microorganisms thriving in the highly radioactive coolant water near the core.
5. Beneath a Crack in Death Valley National Park The Devil’s Hole pupfish, one of the first species protected under the Endangered Species Act, is one of the rarest animals in the world. Fewer than a hundred were counted this year, and in 2006 its population was 38. 4. Deep Sea Vents
Deep sea vents are the prototypical strange place for life. Complex ecosystems, first discovered in 1977, are thriving in utter darkness, under intense pressure, fueled by sulfur. Thevents are found at the intersections of two oceanic plates.
3. At Very, Very Old Ages
More recently, scientists have resuscitated bacteria that have been on ice for millions of years. The bacteria were in suspended animation in the oldest ice on Earth, in a valley in Antarctica.
2. The Coldest Places on Earth
In the Antarctic, emperor penguins spend months at temperatures as cold as -40 Fahrenheit. They survive by huddling together, sharing warmth and minimizing the surface area of their bodies that is exposed to the cold.
1. In the Stratosphere Yes, the stratosphere-the layer of Earth"s atmosphere that starts at about six miles above the ground. Massive dust storms from the Sahara and other deserts move millions of tons of soil each year, and a shocking number and variety of microbes go along for the ride.
