NASA scientists discover all-new form of life

NASA scientists have discovered an entirely new form of life that shares no biological building blocks with anything currently known on Earth, the agency said today.

Looks like a combination of peanuts, corn, and somebody's teeth!

Love the comments!

"I presume further study will only reveal this microbe to be the missing link between humans and politicians..."

This is an extraordinary discovery and one that probably belongs in the same company as the discovery of DNA itself.

Re: NASA scientists discover all-new form of life

Speaking of discoveries, I was watching the news the other day at lunch and they were talking about how scientists have discovered a way to reverse the aging process in lab rats. Basically these lab rats would be equal to a human who's around 80 or 90 years old, and when they had preformed the test on them, the rats actually started being able to reproduce again, started growing new fur/hair, etc...

They are hoping this could one day led to possibly a cure or to reverse the effects of Alzheimer in humans and of course reverse the aging process in general.

I know that wasn't exactly what this thread is about, but it got me thinking about that with this discovery. Imagine what this discovery and the one I was talking about could mean for people in the future!

Agreed. They are going to need to re-write the science books. This is truly amazing.

Yeah I read about that. Could be a big step towards solving the cancer puzzle too.

Crazy to think where modern medicine could be in the next 50 years.

While it's sad to know that a lot of us have lost close friends and family in our lives due to diseases such as Cancer or Alzheimer, it's hopeful to know that there is a possibility of coming up with a cure.

The way I see it, people way back in the stone age died because of the common cold and the flu. Nowadays, we think nothing of them. I could see this possibly being true for nastier diseases down the road.
