"Discovering the Rose Garden"


While looking for lava vents,
scientists found black smokers,
jets of hot water and minerals
spewing from the ocean floor.

All around them there lived
huge tube worms, giant clams,
and other animals supported by
bacteria feasting on the rich waters:

a whole ecosystem living in the cracks.

They named it the Rose Garden
for the red tube worms, and went on
to search for more hydrothermal vents
in oceans around the world.

The vents lay down layers of
minerals, but more importantly,
they remind us that life

always finds a way.
