Shannon Johnson uses robots to explore deep-sea hydrothermal vents, where science-fiction-worthy animals live in hot, acidic water and munch on bacteria that can survive in space.

Experience intense, unique, and sometimes dangerous moments with scientists working in the field, as they explain first-hand the kinds of risks they take to find answers. There's so much more to being a scientist than being stuck in a lab. Watch every Wednesday for new episodes of Science in the Extremes.
