Hi! I'm a High school student desperately searching for a project for
 the science fair. I have an idea, but I need some info. I have heard of
 bacteria that grow in the presence of sulfer dioxide in volcanic vents 
in the ocean. I want to reproduce the living conditions and grow the
 bacteria to see if it will filter the SO2. If it does, it could be
 used to filter the polluted air from factories.
I NEED TO KNOW:
1. What the bacteria is called.
2. If there are any other organisms that live on SO2.
3. If there is a simple device for measuring SO2.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Sarah
