http://news.national...e-animals-life/ This article talks about a newly discovered worm that lives miles below the surface. This discovery suggests there may be a previously undiscovered biophsere that lives deep within the earth. If life could survive and thrive in these pressures imagine how much further it could go. Imagine the entire mantle thriving with underground extremeophiles. There are large quantities of water trapped in the mantle. What do members think about the possibility of future discoveries of a large underground biosphere.

That reminds me of seasonal rise of methane levels on Mars and faint hope that there could be life out there that survived underground, when surface became cold desert.

I think this only proves one hypothesis that life will find ways. And it also opens doors for other planets orbiting nearby stars but also with in our solar system which could support life forms that evolved in extreme environmental conditions.

It's dangerous to be right, when your government is wrong.
They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Yet we have to remember that life almost certainly moved there. So first we need conditions for abiogenesis (those probably were present on Mars once) and then propagate to such extreme enviroinments.

Not necessarily, theories propose that life started not on the surface but deep underground near plate boundaries where there is a lot of heat exchange and chemical mixing under pressure. Uni or even multicellular life would have originally formed deep underground and then migrated the the surface via the oceans.
