Is there any organism "requiring temperatures of at least 90 °C for survival"? Wikipedia says even Pyrococcus furiosus can live at 70 °C.

I added two bacteria that live at around 100 °C and cancelled information that Bacteria can live only up to around 70 °C. The difference between Archaea and Bacteria is not that much. 18:45, 31 October 2006 (UTC), a casual visitor, Poland.

New bacteria found that lives to 169 degrees Celsius[edit]

Here are my sources for bacteria living at 169 degrees Celsius (332.6 degrees Fahrenheit) (talk) 23:45, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

What temperature????????????? "A hyperthermophile is an organism that thrives in extremely hot environments— from 60,000 degrees Celsius (1400 degrees Fahrenheit) upwards." ???????????????????? Probably you have mistaken thermonuclear fusion for hyperthermophile organism. You used as a source originally non-Latin or non-English texts where comma is used to separate fractional part of a number instead of a dot. Before you someone added unnecessary high degree of precision (e.g. 60,0 -> 60,000) and you then simply showed it here and mistakenly(!!!) (from 60 000 C it would be 108032 F) converted this mistaken number to Fahrenheit. Otherwise, a very interesting subject and a very frustrating article. (talk) 15:26, 9 January 2009 (UTC)
