    12:23, so theoreticaly if you put a bunch of those organisms on Mars, you *could* create a new species because it will evolve at some point because Mars has both nitrate and sulfate. (nitrate in abundance). There is also water in the form of vapor and ice, even if it is such a low amount. So yes and no, the organisms might die incredibly quickly because its a new enviroment with not all the needs they need to survive long enough to evolve. And even if they do start to evolve it wont be in our life time where they will evolve past a single cellular oragnism most likely.

    Nothing strange about bacterial symbiosis. We humans, and every other animal with a gut have a symbiotic infection upon which we rely to survive. If anybody's bacterial culture dies completely, then they are in trouble too.

    I know a lot of people who seem to get along fine with a mouse that is also an anus too. It's remarkable what life can do really tube worms sound cool. Can we inoculate them with modified bacteria? Perhaps something that tastes like barbecue sauce so we can fry them up and eat them unseasoned lol

    I had an idea: what if the isopod lives inside the jellyfish to help attract prey for the jelly - predators of the isopod would smell(?) or sense the isopod and run into the jelly on accident. The jelly benefits by having something to attract prey and the isopod enjoys scraps of food inside the jellys digestive system. thoughts?

    Hank says symbiosis between tubeworms and bacteria could be thought of as " infection", but I'd like to think of it more like the bacteria have entered into a "pre/new construction agreement" before the rest of the (tubeworm) condos have been finished!

    Just a quick theory but could deepstaria and the isopod have a food based relationship? Perhaps the jelly is coated in a film the isopod finds appealing, whilst perhaps the isopods waste can be filtered by the host? Essentially recycling nutrition between the two in times when food is scarce? Anyways, great vid sci-show!

    Chemosynthesis is non-brainer that chemists think is smart. When carbohydrates are burned, we call it metabolism. When sulfur complexes are burned, it should just be called metabolism. There is nothing special about it. They just make a big deal over it because it doesn't mesh with evolution theory or molten-core earth theories.
