Through a Glass Darkly
Topic: Extreme Life
08/25/08
Summary: New from the Nordic issue of Astrobiology Magazine, European Edition: Just as stained glass windows that decorate the world´s most beautiful cathedrals depict stories, ancient life may have its own tales to tell in glass.

The Deep Dark Biosphere
Topic: Extreme Life
07/26/08
Summary: Scientists have shown evidence that microbes living deep below the oceans of Earth make up a carbon reserve of about 90 billion tons. The study highlights the abundance and importance of microbes on Earth.

Stars of the Deep
Topic: Extreme Life
07/24/08
Summary: Researchers studying life deep beneath the Earth's surface in a South African platinum mine have discovered microbes with a unique appearance. In fact, these tiny bacteria are the 'stars' of their community.

Making Sense of Mars Methane
Topic: Extreme Life
06/09/08
Summary: Research on methane at a Mexican salt flat could help reveal the source of methane that has been detected in the atmosphere of Mars. But first scientists have to decipher the unique – and seemingly contradictory - isotopic signature of the Mexican methane.

How Low Can Life Go?
Topic: Extreme Life
06/06/08
Summary: A novel, ultra-small bacterial species has been found at a depth of nearly two miles within the ice of a Greenland glacier. The ability of this organism to survive in such a unique environment will help us understand how life could survive elsewhere in the solar system.

Illuminating Life
Topic: Extreme Life
04/24/08
Summary: A small, light-weight microscope that can produce high-resolution images is being developed to help astrobiologists study microbial life in some of Earth's most extreme environments. These studies can allow scientists to determine the limits of life and will help define habitable environments on other planets.

Radiation Resistant Rotifers
Topic: Extreme Life
03/28/08
Summary: An animal common to marine environments on Earth has shown extreme resistance to radiation. Radiation is one of the greatest dangers for life traveling in space, and the finding could yield clues about how life might survive beyond Earth.

Frozen Life Cubes
Topic: Extreme Life

Topic: Extreme Life
02/14/08
Summary: Last June, a group of scientists visited Iceland, one of the most active volcanic places in the world. In some ways, Iceland resembles what the young Earth was like, so studying modern bacteria that colonize Iceland´s rocks may provide clues about early life.
