DailyDirt: Life, Life Everywhere

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Evidence of life hasn't been found outside of our planet (yet?), but life seems to be getting into nearly every nook and cranny of our dear Earth. Places that seem too cold or hot or dark have been shown to harbor life forms that survive in unusual ways, eating substances that aren't normally considered food. Here are just a few examples of these extremophiles that suggest life might exist on other worlds, even if the conditions don't seem ideal. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
