Hydrogen and methane provide raw energy for life at 'Lost City'

...s, Lost City microbes appear to live off bountiful methane and hydrogen. Absent is carbon dioxide, the key energy source for life at black-smoker vents. And there is little hydrogen sulfide and only very low traces of metals, on which many of the microbes at the other kind of vents depend. The difference in ...

It's electric: Cows show promise as powerplants

...ce isn't a new idea : some farmers already use the methane released by livestock waste to power machinery and lights. But converting methane into electricity requires costly equipment : one California farmer reportedly spent $280,000 to conv...

...net's crust. Domack and his coauthors propose that methane from deep underwater vents likely provide the energy source capable of sustaining the chemical life at the observed 850-meter [approximately 2800-foot] depth. Such extreme cold-vent regions have previously been found near Monterey, California, where...
