Microbial life has been discovered sealed in a brine lake beneath 65 feet of Antarctic ice after spending nearly 3,000 years isolated from external energy sources.
The findings, detailed in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, describe the microbes’ Lake Vida habitat as aphotic (with little or no light), anoxic (without oxygen), and slightly acidic brine with a temperature of -13C. Carbon dating has indicated that the inhospitable-sounding brine has been isolated for more than 2,800 years.

Thanks . Then we can continue with the discussion on this topic .
In my opinion , This discovery surely increases the possibility of ET life on other planets / moons . Then its quite possible those life form may have evolved into intelligent beings .
I guess after this discovery i can say with certainty : Where there is Water , There is Life .
