Ebola is one of numerous Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers. The virus first appears in a human at the start of an outbreak probably through contact with an infected animal. The virus can be transmitted to others through direct contact with the blood or secretions of an infected person or exposure to objects (such as needles) that have been contaminated with infected secretions.   It is not transmitted through the air.

Dr Terry Kee explains how hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor - where biological life may have first emerged on the early Earth - acts in a similar way to a fuel cell.

Because the Pacific plate is the largest of all the tectonic plates on Earth, crustal material at its western edge has had a long time since formation (up to 170 million years) to compact and become very dense; hence its great height-difference relative to the higher-riding Mariana Plate, at the point where the Pacific Plate crust is subducted. This deep area is the Mariana Trench proper.
