Signs of life found beneath Antarctic tundra

Recommended Posts

Antarctica's Dry Valleys are the most arid places on Earth, but underneath their icy soils lies a vast and ancient network of salty, liquid water filled with life, a new study finds.

The Dry Valleys are almost entirely ice-free, except for a few isolated glaciers. The only surface water is a handful of small lakes. Inside the canyons, the climate is extremely dry, cold and windyicon1.png; researchers have stumbled upon mummified seals in these gorges that are thousands of years old.

That is very interesting. I think it does show that life can be found in strange and unexpected places.

A unique ecosystem discovered 1,000ft underground may increase the odds of finding life on other worlds.

From the link:

“It suggests that this ecosystem is extensive and connected. There could be a very, very large subsurface habitable environment throughout the Antarctic regions,” Ross Virginia, an ecosystem ecologist at Dartmouth College, told Discovery News.

That is because of all those tunnels the Old Ones dug to connect their subterranean cities. But those ways are only haunted by the shoggoths now.

Now this is something I was talking about for ages. Life on other worlds doesn't necessarily need exact same conditions for life like we do here on Earth. Perhaps somewhere life developed in a much warmer, or much colder world than our's. We still don't know **** haha

Earth may have habitats that mimic the subsoil or other areas of Mars, but that does not necessarily mean Mars has or ever had life. Some sort of deep drilling device in a suitable area of Mars might be able to settle this.

The fact that Earth life seems to exist just about everywhere and every habitat we look at is encouraging in our search for alien life forms.
