In this July-August lecture series, DRI’s Dr. Scott Hamilton-Brehm will describe how investigating Earth’s extreme microbes helps us search for life in space as part of DRI's work with the NASA Astrobiology Institute's "Life Underground." 

Microbes make up the vast majority of all life on Earth, yet we can only grow 1% of them in the laboratory. The remaining unknown majority of microbes may hold many innovative answers, including the origins of life. 

Please join us for a scientific journey with DRI and the NASA Astrobiology Institute as we discover how studying extreme microbes from boiling springs to deep underground can teach us what life could be like on other planets or moons in our solar system.
