Exciting Astrobiology Discovery

Stay tuned for an exciting astrobiology discovery! NASA are holding a news conference tonight at 1900 GMT to discuss a finding ‘that will affect the search for life’. Sounds jolly intriguing. Looking at some of the discussions on the OU forums from our course head, it looks likely to be based on lifeforms that can use arsenic in place of phosphorous. It could demonstrate¬†separately developed life on Earth, increasing again the chance for life elsewhere.

Enough guessing and stuff though we’ll find out from the conference tonight. You can watch it here at NASA TV. Starts 1900 GMT on the media channel I believe!
