Caption: Mono Lake California has been of great interest due to the recent discovery that it contains a species of bacteria that thrives in arsenic and uses it to form its DNA. This implies that extra-terrestrial life may be able to exist in conditions once thought much too hostile such as Saturn's giant moon, Titan. This image shows a number of tufa columns.
