Default As if I haven't given you enough good news already ...

Following on from my previous post, I give you this ...:-


'Never mind Mars, alien life may be thriving right here on Earth, a major science conference has heard.

'Our planet may harbour forms of "weird life" unrelated to life as we know it, according to Professor Paul Davies, a physicist at Arizona State University.

'This "shadow life" may be hidden in toxic arsenic lakes or in boiling deep sea hydrothermal vents, he says.'


The news just keeps getting better and better.

Yep, extremophiles are cool, and probably as alien as we're likely to find, even on another world. Granting of course the caveat that things out there are "not only stranger than we imagine, but stranger than we can imagine."
