New Life Discovered In The Dead Sea

In the 1950s the Jordan River's entry into the Dead Sea was cut off to provide drinking water. Since then the water level in the lake, which already sits in the lowest place on Earth, continued to fall by about four feet every year . It has fallen by more than 80 feet (25 meters) in the past 40 years. Now freshwater springs have been discovered spewing from giant craters on the bottom of this apparently barren lake. In and around these springs colonies of new bacterial species thrive.
