Researchers Use 'Seafloor Gardens' to Switch on Light Bulb
Pasadena CA (JPL) Aug 07, 2015
One of the key necessities for life on our planet is electricity. That's not to say that life requires a plug and socket, but everything from shrubs to ants to people harnesses energy via the transfer of electrons - the basis of electricity. Some experts think that the very first cell-like organisms on Earth channeled electricity from the seafloor using bubbling, chimney-shaped structures, also known as chemical gardens. In a new study, researchers report growing their own tiny chimneys in a labor ... read more

    Nonphotosynthetic pigments could be biosignatures of life on other worlds
    To find life in the universe, it helps to know what it might look like. If there are organisms on other planets that do not rely wholly on photosynthesis - as some on Earth do not - how might those ... more
    Atmospheric signs of volcanic activity could aid search for life
