Scientists trying to create artificial life generally work under the assumption that life must be carbon-based, but what if a living thing could be made from another element? One British researcher may have proven that theory, potentially rewriting the book of life.

Lee Cronin of the University of Glasgow has created lifelike cells from metal — a feat few believed feasible. The discovery opens the door to the possibility that there may be life forms in the universe not based on carbon, reports New Scientist.

I found this interesting. These things might be evolving. They are doing further tests by placing them in different environments. It opens a multitude of possibilities. Does this mean that maybe there are metal bases life forms in our universe. I guess it might. I always thought it was a bit closed minded of us to think life had to be bases on carbon.

Interesting but, if I blow a bubble in a bubble does that limit lifelike cells? Nope just bubbles inside bubbles. Now if these cells start splitting ect that would be quite something.

If this do evolve into fully inorganic self-replicating entities, I think it have the potential of becoming very beautiful.
Looking forward to hear more about it.
I notised that this article was from the end of 2011, so any more news about it recently?

bears, beats, battle star galactica.

We are making Cylons! I never fail to see comparisons with battle star galactica and star trek in daily life.

I see the world through the eyes of a nerd. It's cool.

Well I know for certain that should the cylons arrive I want me a #6 or.. if you liked Caprica, a Zoey. (She was 20 in the show, so shhh that school uniform was a trap!!).. thaty husky voice made me grab my helmet, pump up my tube, and lube my chain.. and then go for a bike ride just to cool down!

Perhaps this is the key to unlocking the origin of Optimus Prime.
