Ancient, hydrogen-rich waters deep underground around the world: Waters could support isolated life

17 diciembre 2014

A team of scientists has mapped the location of hydrogen-rich waters found trapped kilometers beneath Earth’s surface in rock fractures in Canada, South Africa and Scandinavia. Common in Precambrian Shield rocks — the oldest rocks on Earth — the ancient waters have a chemistry similar to that found near deep sea vents, suggesting these waters can support microbes living in isolation from the surface.
