At the bottom of the Mariana trench discovered the bacteria that feed on oil

At the deepest point of the oceans, the Mariana trench located in Western Pacific ocean and going under the surface of almost 11 000 metres (for comparison, the height of mount Everest is 8848 meters), scientists have discovered unique bacteria that feed on oil. The study, whose results were published in the journal Microbiome, was conducted by an international team of specialists, led by researchers from the University of East Anglia. Together with their colleagues from China and Russia, scientists conducted the most comprehensive analysis of microbial populations in the deepest part of the basin.

The research team went down to collect samples of microbial population in the deepest part of the Mariana trench – about 11 000 metres under water. Back in the lab, the researchers recreated the conditions of habitat of these bacteria and found that some of these groups of microorganisms able to degrade hydrocarbon.

“Hydrocarbons are organic compounds that consist only of hydrogen and carbon, and can be found in many items including crude oil and natural gas. Thus, these types of microorganisms essentially feed on compounds similar to those found in oil, and then use them as fuel. These organisms played a role in removing oil spills that occur when natural disasters such as the BP oil spill in 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico”, says one of the authors of a new study Jonathan Todd from the School of biological Sciences University of East Anglia.

Discovered bacteria decompose hydrocarbons

Scientists report that the proportion of bacteria degrading hydrocarbons in the basin is the highest on Earth. But how do bacteria get hydrocarbons? To uncover this mystery, the scientists took water samples from depths of 2,000, 4,000 and 6,000 meters. It was found that hydrocarbons are present in all the samples taken of the water.

“We have discovered that hydrocarbons exist at a depth of 6000 meters below the ocean surface and perhaps even deeper. Their considerable part is probably due to the pollution of the ocean surface,” explains Nicholas Pedenchuk from the School of environmental Sciences University of East Anglia.

“To our surprise, we also identified a biologically produced hydrocarbons in the oceanic sediments on the bottom of the trench. This suggests that a unique microbial population produces hydrocarbons in the environment” — added the researcher.

According to scientists, these hydrocarbons are similar to compounds that comprise diesel fuel. They were discovered in algae on the ocean surface, but is never found in the germs in the vast depths.

According to the researchers, the hydrocarbons help the microbes survive tremendous pressure to 1091 kg/cm2, which is at the bottom of the Martian troughs.

“In addition, they can also act as a food source for other microbes that may be able to consume any of polluting hydrocarbons entering the bottom of the ocean. But more research is needed to fully understand this unique environment,” adds David Lee Smith, another author of the study from the School of biological Sciences University of East Anglia.

The researchers plan to further explore microbial life at the bottom of the Mariana trench, and will try to figure out the volumes of hydrocarbons that fall in the environment due to human activities.

“Until we know more about Mars than about the deepest parts of the oceans,” concluded Professor Xiao-Hua Zhang from the Ocean University in China.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!
