I was just talking to one of my buddies about this the other day.
My personal opinion is they're going to find abundant life down there, but I don't know enough about biology to know what to expect. Maybe someone
with a biology background could shed some light on this...
What kind of life would we reasonably expect to find? Will it be microbial only or can we expect to find more complex organisms down there? We
already know life can exist at the deepest, darkest depths with virtually no sunlight at all, but would there be enough food down there for
prehistoric fish to exist, or would that have died out long ago?
This is all very interesting to me since I'm a proponent of the "life is everywhere" school of thought.
