Secrets of Life from A Giant Pool of Asphalt | Weird Places: Pitch Lake, Trinidad
Trinidad’s Pitch Lake is a huge, oily, and filled with millions of tons of asphalt. It may not sound like a great place to live, but the lake is teeming with microscopic life! And learning more about these organisms could give us insight into how life could exist on other, less hospitable worlds.
