    an interesting development. I've always said that alien life is highly likely, with alien microbes being the most common. Maybe there's life in the methane lakes of Titan, who knows.

    an important question is whether organisms with artificial DNA are really viable, or whether they're making big sacrifices to survive that way.

    yea, i agree with you.

    that's what my astronomy teacher told us. something a long the lines of.

    "We've spent billions of dollars looking for even the smallest forms of life in space, and have yet to find anything, the odds of aliens visiting us is extremely unlikely." he also looked pretty sad when he told us this. LOL!

    but yea, if we do find alien life it will probably be some sort of bacteria.

    I think it might be dangers letting these human mutated organisms mix with the natural ones. might create some sort of super bug.
