Cosmos - - Spectrum - Deep Life by TULLIS C. ONSTOTT

LIFE CAN THRIVE in the most in­hos­pitable places. And find­ing out just how in­hos­pitable has been the life’s work of Tullis Onstott, pro­fes­sor of geos­ciences at Prince­ton Univer­sity. While rooted in the earth, the study may also help in the quest to find life in the so­lar sys­tem and be­yond. This amaz­ing jour­ney takes us from deep in a South African gold mine, to the an­cient seabed be­low a desert floor to travel deep be­neath the frozen Arc­tic tun­dra.
