Long-standing recycling of ancient sulfur in billion-year-old rocks supports unique ecosystems in terrestrial deep subsurface and sheds insights into search for life on Mars
Thu, 2016-10-27 13:31

To the naked eye, ancient rocks may look completely inhospitable, but in reality, they can sustain an entire ecosystem of microbial communities in their fracture waters isolated from sunlight for millions, if not billions, of years. New scientific findings discovered the essential energy source to sustain the life kilometres below Earth’s surface with implications for life not only on our planet but also on Mars.

Specifically, students complete internships first and are then provided with additional opportunities to engage with employers the following autumn.
