Although this finding does not confirm the presence of extraterrestrial life elsewhere in the universe, it proves the possibility of life forms that can grow on elements that are unknown or unusual for life on Earth. “It is itself the construction of the arsenic,” said geo-microbiologist Felisa Wolfe-Simon to the NASA Astrobiology Institute and the U.S. Geological Survey, who led researchers from eight universities and federal laboratories to conduct the experiment. “All life as we know it is the same biochemical pathway, and it is a little different. He suggests that there is another way of being alive. “(Via New York Times)
