Extremophiles in Kamchatka The searing, acidic waters of the Uzon Caldera on Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula are paradise for microorganisms such as colorful bacteria and algae. At this new exhibit from the Exploratorium in San Francisco, visitors can tag along with U.S. and Russian researchers who choppered into the remote collapsed volcano last year. The scientists narrate slideshows about their work on extremophiles. One group, for instance, is studying traces that modern bugs leave in the minerals that precipitate around hot springs. They hope to find ways to more easily identify microbial remains in ancient rocks--and possibly in extraterrestrial samples.
