NASA has discovered a completely new life form that doesn't share the biological building blocks of anything currently living in planet Earth, using arsenic to build its DNA, RNA, proteins, and cell membranes. This changes everything.
That is not the case. The DNA is largely the same, except that phosphorous has been exchanged with Arsenic.
