Frozen For 32,000 Years--And still Alive!

This is an old story, but a good one nonetheless. NASA scientists thawed some mircrobes they scraped from beneath the frozen Arctic surface, and the little guys came suddenly to life!

There was also the case, in 1998, of rock-eating microbes being discovered miles beneath the ocean floor.

Combined and it's simply more proof that "life as we know it" is constantly being challeneged here on Earth--much less beneath the surface of Mars...
