Off the coast of Japan, scientists have discovered unicellular microbes that exist without light, oxygen and without water

A scientific expedition engaged in deep-sea drilling in the Pacific Ocean helped scientists understand how microbes can survive in the harshest and most unfit conditions for living organisms, according to Japanese media.

Drilling a hole to a depth of more than 2 thousand meters below the ocean floor near the coast of Japan, the scientists found there unicellular microbes that exist without light, oxygen and virtually no water.
