Everything we know about life may change today

Nasa has apparently discovered a new life form – in a poisonous lake in California, no less. Wired explains:

All life on Earth is made of six components: carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. Every being, from the smallest amoeba to the largest whale, shares the same life stream. Our DNA blocks are all the same. (source)

But this little critter uses arsenic instead of sulfur phosphorous. If there can be an arsenic-based life form on earth, who knows what could be waiting for us out there…. pretty goddamned cool stuff if you ask me. Nasa is supposed to tell us more at 2 pm.
