At their conference today, NASA scientist Felisa Wolfe Simon will announce that they have found a bacteria whose DNA is completely alien to what we know today. Instead of using phosphorus, the bacteria uses arsenic. All life on Earth is made of six components: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. Every being, from the smallest amoeba to the largest whale, share the same life stream. Our DNA blocks are all the same.
Kick ASS!!! Oh and I think NASA should issue a nationwide “I told you so” to anyone that has ever doubted their work.
I wonder if this means that NASA has to start over for their search for ET life or not. If they were looking for habitable planets that would only be habitable to beings like us, I think this would show that there is a possibility for life that might live on a planet that’s completely unlike our own.
