In the summer of 2013, the biggest French oceanographic ship, the ‘Pourquoi pas’ [‘Why not’] undertook an extremely important mission, which allowed the international team of 30 scientists on board to test their latest hypotheses: that bacteria play a vital role in the survival of underwater species in the deep ocean.

This co-operation between the species and the bacteria casts doubt on ideas about the origins of life held until now.


Debate with :

  • François Lallier, Head of mission
  • Magali Zbinden, Lecturer at UPMC in " Adaptations to extreme environments " team
