Amazing... it really goes to show the incredible power of life and evolution. Since it started on this planet, life has spread to pretty much every conceivable ecological niche imaginable. I think it's an overstatement when people say this planet is on a knifes edge, with bacteria like this surviving in such harsh conditions, I don't see why life couldn't survive on other planets. The only reason we see earth as more inhabitable for life is because the only life we know, including us, evolved on this planet.
