Professor Reysenbach has been diving in human-occupied vessels to deep-sea hydrothermal vents since 1988 to understand life under extreme conditions. She is highly recognized for her work on the heat-loving, acid-tolerating, toxic-chemical-eating microorganisms from deep-sea and terrestrial hot springs. Besides serving as a new resource for industrial and medical advances, these organisms inform us about life in extreme conditions and expand our vision of living environments in our solar system and elsewhere.
