This just happened and it is pretty cool stuff. An organism was found in mono lake that can thrive and reproduce using arsenic. "The microorganism substitutes arsenic for phosphorus in its cell components."

I saw the press conference on nasa.gov/ntv. It was intriguing, and they certainly did not present what many people looked forward to seeing, i.e., "E.T's." What they demonstrated was that life on other planets can be very different to how we understand life, and they now also realize that we do not necessarily have to look at planets resembling our own in order to find life, since it is possible that astrobiological lifeforms survive through different means, such as with arsenic, which NASA scientists suggested yesterday.
