WHOI geochemist Chris German joined a panel recently with (left to right) Robert Ballard from the University of Rhode Island, Mary Voytek from NASA, Frieder Klein from WHOI, and Christopher Glein from the Southwest Research Institute to mark the 40th anniversary of the discovery of hydrothermal vents. The event was part of the Morss Colloquium, and addressed the question of how discovering life capable of surviving on chemicals flowing from vents on the seafloor changed understanding of how life might exist on ocean worlds beyond Earth.
