.Current scientific knowledge suggest that the smallest living organisms are bacteria, but these new structures - dubbed 'nanobes' - are in fact much smaller at 1/10 of a bacterium's size (bacteria on head of a pin). They were discovered from rock samples retrieved from 3 to 5 Kilometres below the ocean bed where atmospheric pressure is around 2000x normal, and temperatures range between 115 to 170 degs Centigrade; not an easy place for living things to flourish!

Tour the Nanoworld...
feel so little in the huge tiny universe!
