If microbial life exists elsewhere in the solar system, wouldn't we like to actually see it on the move? Bioengineers are already testing a new scope—in extreme environments a bit closer to home—that could capture the 3D videos to make that possible.

The key to any healthy relationship is communication. Two types of microbes near the ocean floor use direct electron transfer to coordinate their symbiotic relationship—which results in the consumption of large amounts of methane from deep ocean vents.
