A chance meeting with Dr. Rich Lutz as relates to the sulphur water in Anna’s Secret Legacy Novel.

Dr. Richard A. Lutz, Science Director of the IMAX film “Volcanoes of the Deep Sea”

“In 1977 a group of scientists descended a mile and half in the tiny submersible Alvin and made a discovery that sent shock waves through the oceanographic community – they found hot-water springs enriched with sulfur compounds on the crest of an undersea volcano.  A myriad of bizarre organisms (foot-long clams, 6-foot long “tubeworms”, porcelain-white crabs, etc.) previously unknown to science surrounded the hot venting fluids.  Subsequent studies revealed the presence of microbes thriving in such deep-sea, hot-water springs at temperatures in excess of 230°F, extending the upper temperature limit for life on our planet.”
