The web-based news article "Life Amidst Glaciers Thrives and Survives" published on Space.com reports on a study showing that life can not only survive beneath tons of ice at the dark, near-freezing junctions between glaciers and Earth, but actually thrive there. Embedded within the text of this article are links to information on the Mars rover and the radiation tolerant microbe Deinococcus radiodurans. The site also includes links to other top stories on Space.com and Live Science.
