Somehow I don't think it's "new"

Could be a good sign they lived long enough to tell the world.

"If this had been found on Mars everyone would have undoubtedly said there is life on Mars."

You don't say?

So that's the source of the zombie plague. Well, now we know.

In all truth it's amazing. Two miles under solid ice, there is life.

Oh for fark's sake.  "New" does not even remotely mean "Super Death Germ".  It is a bacteria that has never tasted penicillin.  Little bastard will go down like a gerbil hit with a flamethrower

I believe I once read a fairly stupid thriller novel that began with something like that.

It seemed like Brand & Falsey started focusing on their other shows after a while. What ever happened to those guys anyway?

Momentary treadjack-

LordOfThePings: It seemed like Brand & Falsey started focusing on their other shows after a while. What ever happened to those guys anyway?

From Yahoo Questions:   5 years ago;

What happened to Northern Exposure creators Joshua Brand and John Falsey?

In the early 1990s, they were among the most highly acclaimed producers in television (Northern Expousre, I'll Fly Away, etc.) yet they more or less vanished from public consciousness by the second half of the decade, with IMDB listing only a few fairly minor projects since then.

What happened?

Today's Google search:

December 2012: Joshua Brand and John Falsey, who co-created hit TV series including Northern Exposure, St. Elsewhere and I'll Fly Away, have been awarded the WGA West's 2013 Paddy Chayefsky Laurel Award for Television. The honor, the guild's lifetime achievement award for outstanding television writing-

^outstanding point.  besides, it would take out the research team way before it could get all plaguey.

Thanks, I saw that -- it's not really a satisfactory "where are they now"-type answer, is it? It just means the Writer's Guild remembers them.

In conclusion (update):Brand is serving as a consultant on the FX seriesThe Americans, as well as writing a one-hour FX pilot,Lords Of The Sunset Strip, focusing on L.A.'s '70s club scene. Among Falsey's recent projects, he wrote a pilot scriptJaynie for HBO in 2011.

/that is all

This what God used to kill off the Dinosaurs when they got too unruly. Our time is up, and he will start His next project in the Evolutionary pipeline

So, they found bacteria, could that mean that higher life forms are there living off the bacteria?

Does anyone know if there's a paper out on this or anything? I really want to see a phylogeny that includes this new organism.

In other news, the members of a Norwegian expedition working in the same general area hasn't been in contact for the last several months.
