NASA will be officially announcing about the findings of a non-DNA based life form discovered on earth and not in outer space. These organisms do not share the typical building blocks needed in the DNA to support life, but rather they are arsenic nature, and it has been discovered in the Mono Lake of California.
According to the scientists, the lake is more than 800,000 years old, it is completely hyper-saline and poisonous in nature. The lake rarely supports any sort life forms except some alkaline flies that are found near by, but the non DNA organisms found recently was a shocking discovery. So now the question here is what has this helped the NASA scientists with?
These latest findings has burst open the possibilities that there can be life in outer space and astrobiology over such organisms is possible. There could be trillions of life forms and may be even civilizations existing outside our galaxy or possibly in our galaxy too.
On earth, every organism which is presently alive and existing use the DNA structures and elements consisting of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulphur, without these no organism could exist. But the latest findings in the Mono lake has challenged the age old theory of evolution and has now opened doors to the possibility that life can really exist even in the harshest and worst known conditions in the universe.
