Caption: Strange tufa formations reflect in the still waters of California's Mono Lake bathed in the pastel shades of twilight. Mono Lake is home to a recently discovered form of bacteria that thrives in arsenic and uses it in 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.
