Water ‘microhabitats’ in oil show potential for extraterrestrial life, oil cleanup: Extremophilic ecosystems writ small

An international team of researchers has found extremely small habitats that increase the potential for life on other planets while offering a way to clean up oil spills on our own. Looking at samples from the world’s largest natural asphalt lake, they found active microbes in droplets as small as a microliter, which is about 1/50th of a drop of water.
