She'll discuss life near deep-sea thermal vents in the Pacific Ocean. The Webcast also includes Dr. Alissa Arp, a biologist from San Francisco State University studying the tube worms that live around these very hot marine spots. Jonathan Trent, Astrobiologist, NASA Ames Research Center studies "thermophiles," heat-loving microbes inhabiting places once thought too hostile for life, but analogous to environments that might be found on other planets. He discovered that some of these microbes make a protein that appears to stabilize their cell membranes (and may have applications for nanotechnology). Watch as the best teachers on the planet battle it out for the title of Iron Science Teacher. In this zany competition teachers will have ten minutes to create a science activity.
