And then you said we can't pretend to know the truth, the how and when, the end. And it's all so grand, in our sub-galactic tank and it bleeds a little pressure near the hydrothermal vents. If the innocent survive will the practical provide?

In 1977, scientists exploring the Galápagos Rift along the mid-ocean ridge in the eastern Pacific noticed a series of temperature spikes in their data. They wondered how deep-ocean temperatures could change so drastically-from near freezing to 400 °C (750 °F)-in such a short distance. The scientists had made a fascinating discovery-deep-sea hydrothermal vents. They also realized that an entirely unique ecosystem, including hundreds of new species, existed around the vents. Despite the extreme temperatures and pressures, toxic minerals, and lack of sunlight that characterized the deep-sea vent.

The Lost City Vent Field or Lost City is a series of alkaline hydrothermal vents located on the Atlantis Massif at the intersection between the Mid Atlantic Ridge and the Atlantis Transform Fault. It is a long-lived site of active and inactive ultramafic-hosted serpentinization, abiotically producing many molecules such as methane and hydrogen that are fundamental to microbial life. It is a prime location for investigating the origin of life on Earth and other planets similar to it.

Deep-sea hydrothermal vents form as a result of volcanic activity on the ocean floor. Water seeps through cracks in the Earth's crust, dissolving metals and minerals as it becomes super-heated from nearby magma. This water - which can reach temperatures of 400°C - eventually rises back through the ocean floor, erupting as a geyser from a hydrothermal vent. The dissolved minerals and metals precipitate on contact with the cold sea water, forming a chimney around the vent. In a process called chemosynthesis, specialized bacteria create energy from the hydrogen sulfide present in the mineral-rich water pouring out of the vents. These bacteria form the bottom level of the food chain in these ecosystems, upon which all other vent animals are dependent. Vent microorganisms are unique in other ways, too.

Submarine hot springs, called hydrothermal vents, spew out mineral-rich hot water. As part of the bargain, we get these amazing deep sea hydrothermal ventswhat a bonus! The heat that drives mantle convection, which in turn causes ocean floor spreading and melts rocks, is the very same heat that transforms seawater into hydrothermal fluid in the oceanic crust, which in turn eventually spews out of the vents. This heat that drives both mantle convection and hydrothermal vent formation is also one of the reasons that the vents themselves don't last very long. Dynamic forces create constant change at the sea floor

However, animals at hydrothermal vents have special biochemical adaptations that protect them from hydrogen sulfide. One of these hydrogen sulfide-making species is Pyrolobus fumarii (or "fire lobe of the chimney"), that was first isolated from a hydrothermal vent at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It grows at 90-113°C and has an optimal temperature of 106°C. Pyrodictium abyssi are disc-shaped cells that grow attached to networks of hollow tubes that resemble tree roots. These microbes grow best at 105C but can reproduce between 80 and 110°C.

During our exploration of the deep sea hydrothermal vents along the Galapagos Rift, the team spotted many organisms in addition to Riftia tubeworms. From common sea cucumbers to the rare squidworm, the biology of the region is diverse and unique. Just Offshore - Biology Tour of the Channel Islands.

Under the sea, hydrothermal vents may form features called black smokers. Relative to the majority of the deep sea, the areas around submarine hydrothermal vents are biologically more productive, often hosting complex communities fueled by the chemicals dissolved in the vent fluids. Chemosynthetic bacteria and archaea form the base of the food chain, supporting diverse organisms, including giant tube worms, clams, limpets and shrimp. They also seek a potential glimpse of the origins of life on our planet, and perhaps its origins on others. On March 4, 2003, the Endeavour Hydrothermal Vent Marine Protected Area was officially designated under Canada’s Oceans Act.

Life may have gotten started in hydrothermal vents where acidic seawater met with bitter alkaline fluid from the Earth's crust. A new theory proposes the primordial life-forms that gave rise to all life on Earth left deep-sea vents because of their "invention" of a tiny pump. These primitive cellular pumps would have powered life-giving chemical reactions. Authors of the new theory argue the environmental conditions in porous hydrothermal vents - where heated, mineral-laden seawater spews from cracks in the ocean crust - created a gradient in positively charged protons that served as a "battery" to fuel the creation of organic molecules and proto-cells.
