Mono Lake California & Arsenic?
Bacteria that thrive on arsenic have been scooped from the depths of the Mono Lake in California, a discovery that redefines the building blocks of life and offers new hope in the search for extraterrestrial beings.
The new discovery is unlike every other life-form on the planet, from the simplest plant to the most complex mammal.
Scraped from the bottom of Mono Lake in California and then grown inside a laboratory, the bacteria uses the poisonous substance arsenic as a replacement for phosphorus, the element previously considered an essential backbone for all life.
Is the new found bacterial alien life? Does this discovery confirm the existence of extraterrestrial life?
