When someone know that the temperature in a hydrothermal vent can
reach 400 degrees Celsius, he will think that this place(hydrothermal
vent) is not a good place for life. But after many years of search,
many scientists prove the existence of many forms of life live around
these vents by using the submersible Alvin. The question is: How these
forms of life can stand with this extreme temperature?

Thanks...
