Bruce Fouke, along with photographer Tom Murphy, has published a new book, The Art of Yellowstone Science – Mammoth Hot Springs as a Window on the Universe. The book presents stunning images and clear explanations of the geobiological and astrobiological phenomena found in hot spring systems. 

 "Art and science both originate from the same human desire to understand the world within and around us. In the pages of this book, photographic art at Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park is melded with cutting-edge natural sciences to search for common laws of nature through the power of observation and a willingness to embrace the unexpected. Biological evolution is the essential expression for this combination and Mammoth becomes a window on the universe, through which fundamental understandings of nature can be directly applied around the world and throughout the cosmos. "
