    <P class=wp-caption-text>A three-inch long Lyssianasid amphipod (seen in orange) was found on the underside of the McMurdo ice shelf in Antarctica.</P></DIV>


    Six hundred feet below the Antarctic ice, where no light can be found, NASA scientists made a startling discovery – a swimming shrimp-like creature that could challenge the idea of where and how forms of life can survive.</P>


    <SPAN id=more-5626></SPAN>While the creature is small itself -– only about three inches long -– its impact could be tremendous.</P>


    A NASA team had lowered a small video camera to get the first-ever photograph of the underside of an ice shelf – and that’s when they saw the swimming creature, according to a NASA document.</P>


    The discovery could shake the very foundation of what kind of creatures can survive in certain atmospheres.</P>


    "We were operating on the presumption that nothing's there," NASA ice scientist Robert Bindschadler told the Associated Press. "It was a shrimp you'd enjoy having on your plate."</P>


    "We were just gaga over it," he told the AP.</P>


    The creature, a Lyssianasid amphipod, could lead the way for larger expeditions into harsher environments that scientists previously believed could not support life – both on the Earth and even frozen moons in outer space.</P></DIV></DIV>

    There's a chance this summer my wife and I might be up in Buffalo. It's related to her job and many times she takes your's truly with her......as long as I behave lol Probably fly but rent a car when we get there. I live way out on Long Island and it takes like 8 hours [maybe longer]to drive to Niagra Falls ,which I have not seen in quite awhile</P>


    When you get a chance open the link. I don't know why it was not a direct link. It's an old Abott and Costello routine about Niagra Falls. Kinda [5 minutes]long but funny</P>

    lol.. i was way off, i guess i should read the remaining half of "reading between the lines" for dumbies.. </P>


    that might not be a bad idea at all, get some food and lose a ton at the Casino.. perfect! when do you find out if you if you are going.. </P>


    and if we are doing the "slowly i turned" bit on the Canadian side does that mean i forfeit being allowed to be the hitter.. the hittee looks painfull lol </P>
