Arctic microbe research could aid ET hunt

7 posts in this topic

Work being carried out on the Arctic ice sheets could aid in the hunt for life on other worlds.

Microbes living at the edges of Arctic ice sheets could help researchers pinpoint evidence for similar microorganisms that may have evolved on Mars, Jupiter's moon Europa or Saturn's moon Enceladus, researchers say.

I realize "basic research" can be expensive(2.6 million in this case) but I do see value, in some cases, for future explorations.

Where ever there is a way, life of some kind will prevail no matter where why or how & if you choose to not believe life exists outside of earth then yes we are the center of the universe yes the world is flat etc etc etc.

Hi, Spending millions of $'s looking for microbes but what are we gonna do if and when we find them ? . like "Hi microbe,we are human we mean you no harm,unless you wanna make life difficult then we have no other course than to zap you".We humans like to zap anything that doesn't agree with us...

Spud, the research is to develop techniques to identify microbes. This is important in establishing some sense of validity for "life elsewhere"

Where it could go from there is, I suppose, anyone's guess.
