Saruman! I cant believe this.... you have just given "grist to the Mill" for all of those "Planet X" believers who are saying that the world will end in 2012 due to Planet X coming in (from some totally unexpected orbit) for the sole purpose of detroying Earth!!! *grabs another G and T waiting for the onslaught*

This goes to show how much life there really could be. Our understanding of life in the universe is extremely limited and subjective. I predict that in the next 100 years we will find life to be quite abundant with hundreds of intelligent civilizations in our own galaxy.

Life seems to be everywear on earth. I wouldn't be surprised if there was life in magma. creatures that just live off heat. There's organisms in the air, there are organisms in the water, there are organisms in the deepest water you can imagine. Why not the magma? there are probably creatures in the upper atmosphere too. They all get high off the o-zone layer
