The plumes were seen rising to altitudes of over 250 km above the same […]

We can forgive confused creationists, though, as most of them unfortunately know very little about science (all the more important it is for us […]

Can cold-loving bacteria help to clean up oil spills?

For several decades scientists have been interested in the ability of psychrophilic (cold- loving) microbial communities to degrade the various components of crude oil, which is a process known as bioremediation. Because temperature has a direct impact on enzyme activity there is a concern that, at very low temperatures, the microbial community might be inhibited […]
