   Time to add, "buried antarctic lake, isolated for 2,800 years, devoid of light and oxygen, 5 times saltier than ocean water, and has a temperature cold enough to freeze seawater" to the list of places capable of supporting life

I'm sure this will end well. I've seen enough B-grade horror to know that they should have left the lake well alone.

As these creatures are not mentioned in the Bible, I'd have to say that at least 50% of Americans think that this is a conspiracy theory to promote landing strips for gay martians outside of Des Moines.

All these worlds are yours -- except Europa.

Attempt no landing there.

I'm going to assume that the "Syfy" channel has already aired at least three D-grade movies about this, with another seven in the works as we speak.

Do these gay Martians wax or shave their landing strips?

I was expecting that this was about Lake Vostok, although the "2800" year figure should've tipped me off.

The Lake Vostok results should be in sometime early in 2013. I cannot wait to see what a lake the size of Lake Ontario that has been buried and isolated for 20 million years yields.

I would also pay to watch a robot with a camera swim around down there just on the off chance that something else swims by.

I don't think there are any gay martians
From what I watched on H2 they are all omni-sex or uni-sex or something like that
They like just produce a growth that forms into another one

There is still a ton of cool shiat on this planet. And it is encouraging that more cool shiat will show up after we wiped ourselves out.

I'm hoping the next intelligent species will include these guys, because they look badass.
