Submission + - Upcoming Nasa Announcement 1

to_kallon writes: Following yesterday's story on an upcoming December 2 announcement from Nasa regarding extra-terrestrial life I came across articles at The Sun and MailOnline. In a press conference scheduled for tomorrow evening, researchers will unveil the discovery of the incredible microbe — which substitutes arsenic for phosphorus to sustain its growth — in a lake in California. Astrobiologist Dr Lewis Dartnell, of the Centre for Planetary Sciences in London, said yesterday: "This is exciting. If these organisms use arsenic in their metabolism, it demonstrates that there are other forms of life to those we knew of."
