      The most important thing about microbes is that they are so full of life. What do I mean by this? There are microbes in deep sea vents with extremely high water pressure and really warm temperatures. There are also microbes in the frozen extremes of Antarctica. Any place on this planet where we would have trouble surviving, microbes seem to find a way. We have a lot to learn from them about how they do this.
