You can freeze it, thaw it, vacuum dry it and expose it to radiation, but still life survives. ESA's research on the International Space Station is giving credibility to theories that life came from outer space -- as well as helping to create better sunscreens. Read more

I firmly believe that life will always find a way to survive, despite any disaster, minor or major, and has has been seen many times on this 3rd rock from the sun, so why shouldn't that same principle apply beyond our atmosphere.

Well firstly you have to define life on earth according to what we know is dead easy , life away from earth might be completely different and in a form we haven't thought of.

I was thinking along a similar line, unfortunately the article is more about terrestrial life surviving in outer space.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Looks like we know who will dominate after our world ends in 2012...

Lichen will inherit the Earth!

tardigrade (water bear) is suppose to be invincible and could survive in extreme temps or pressures.

That was the first thing I thought csspwns. The Tardigrade is truly legendary in its hardiness!

Have a look at their wiki page:
