NASA held a press conference today to say that a way has been discovered for life to develop on a non class M planet. (Okay, that last bit is Trekkie speak, but still.)
There are certain basic chemical building blocks to life as we know it, there’s now research showing that one of those building blocks can be altered, changing it to a chemical that is normally poisonous.
There needs to be more research, but finding extra-terrestrial life may be easier if we can challenge the paradigms of what’s needed to create life right here on Earth.
