Scientists have found bacteria that don’t need sunlight

 Ученые нашли бактерии, которым не нужен солнечный свет

Cyanobacteria from wells were almost identical to those found on the Earth’s surface

The researchers found cyanobacteria in Spain , which live in cracks and crevices of the stones.

A group of scientists from Germany, Spain and the USA found cyanobacteria which can live at depths of over 600 metres and do not need sunlight. This was reported on the website of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States.

Researchers drilled the 613-meter well near the river Rio Tinto in Spain and found cyanobacteria, which live in cracks and crevices of the stones. This discovery is important because it was previously thought that such bacteria need to live off light and that is due to them in the Earth atmosphere appeared oxygen.

Cyanobacteria from wells were almost identical to those found on the surface of the Earth. The only difference lies in the ability to absorb hydrogen gas instead of oxygen. For this they use the so-called “safety valve”, which other bacteria performs the function of releasing excess energy to prevent overheating.

Earlier it was reported that coffee contains a huge number of dangerous bacteria, and no matter how often you use the machine.
