This resource explores the possible habitats for microbial life in our solar system. The home page of this site provides links to information on extreme terrestrial environments on Earth such as polar regions, hydrothermal vents, hot springs, and subterranean areas. The extreme habitats of Earth serve as a model for the prediction of life on other terrestrial bodies, including Mars and the moons of Jupiter.
