A panel of scientists convened by the country's leading scientific advisory group says the hunt for extraterrestrial life should be greatly expanded to include what they call "weird life": organisms that lack DNA or other molecules found in life as we know it.
"The committee's investigation makes clear that life is possible in forms different from those on Earth," the scientists conclude in their report, "The Limits of Organic Life in Planetary Systems," published yesterday by the National Research Council.
Other experts hailed the report as an important rethinking of the search for life.
Someone should tell them science fellers about Mom's place...weird life, just a browse away!
