Lidy Hot Springs General Description

A once thriving hot springs resort that featured a dance hall that superseded the popularity of the hot springs itself. When purchased in 1962, by a family with mining interests, Lidy was sadly converted into a mining material processing plant.

The complete history (w/ photos) of Lidy Hot Springs is available here.

NASA visited Lidy in 2002 to study Archaea microbes; a single-celled bacteria that live in the depths of some hot springs – most prevalent in Idaho hot springs. Archaea microbes are the only form of life on earth that can survive without carbon and sunlight. Then, how pray-tell, do Archaea acquire energy? Hydrogen gas.
