They found Extraterrestial life on Titan!

I cannot believe this is not being blown up all over the world. For the first time ever, scientists have found possible life on one of Saturn's moons, Titan. There are articles everywhere but I haven't seen it once on the news and most people aren't discussing it. Please read a little about it here since this is potentially one of the biggest news stories ever.

Now, for those that don't want to read too much, if this is actual life it is most likely primative, but it's still insane. Even more insane is people always assume if we find extraterrestial life it will be like us: carbon based life-forms that breathe oxygen. This is saying we have to completely rethink our idea of what constitutes life and in what type of conditions that life may live.

After Stephen Hawking's little story of the dangers of finding life on other planets, we should probably be cautious, but come on people: they may have found aliens! That's exciting!
