  1. Ice Shelf Collapse Reveals Extreme Life Forms (MSNBC News)
      "The collapse of a giant ice shelf in Antarctica has revealed a thriving ecosystem half a mile below the sea."

      "Despite near freezing and sunless conditions, a community of clams and a thin layer of bacterial mats are flourishing in undersea sediments."

      "Since light could not penetrate the ice or water, these organisms do not use photosynthesis to make energy. Instead, these extreme creatures get their energy from methane, Domack said today." 7-05
