NASA discovers radically new arsenic-based life form

It turns out, NASA has discovered a new form of life, but it wasn't on one of Saturn's moons. It was right here on Earth.

The amazing news is that NASA has discovered a bacteria with DNA completely unlike anything else on Earth. Instead of using phosphorus, this bacteria uses arsenic to survive, something poisonous to pretty much every other life form alive. It's also something plentiful on lots of "uninhabitable" planets.

This completely changes how we view organic life, and it also opens up a whole slew of planets to the possibility of extraterrestrial life. Insanity!
