Meteorite-loving microorganism

The Eternal Flame

Chemolithotrophic microorganisms derive their energy from inorganic sources. Research into the physiological processes of these organisms -- which are grown on meteorite -- provides new insights into the potential of extraterrestrial materials as a source of accessible nutrients and energy for microorganisms of the early Earth. Meteorites may have delivered a variety of essential compounds facilitating the evolution of life, as we know it on Earth.
