Researchers find aquatic environment on Earth with complete absence of any form of life

AIR News
Researchers have found an aquatic environment on the Earth with complete absence of any form of life. They say the research may lead to an improved understanding of the limits of habitability.

The study, published in the journal, Nature Ecology and Evolution, revealed that any form of microbial life was absent in the hot, saline, hyperacid ponds of the Dallol geothermal field in Ethiopia.

Study co-author Purificacion Lopez Garcia from FECYT said they have verified that there's no microbial life in these salty, hot and hyperacid pools or in the adjacent magnesium-rich brine lakes.


According to the researchers, the study helps in understanding the limits of habitability and presents evidence that there are places even on Earth's surface which are sterile though they contain liquid water.
