NASA's big astrobiology announcement

So a few days back NASA announced that they'd be holding a press conference today to announce a major discovery with huge implications for astrobiology, or somesuch.

Turns out they've discovered life on earth that's based on arsenic in place of the phosphorus that's the normal part of the six elements that all life that we were aware of is based on (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur).
