Shrimp have been discovered under a sheet of glacial ice, according to The crustacean (technically a distant relative of the shrimp) and a piece of jellyfish were found 600 feet below the ice by probe and camera. This not only raises questions about the potential for life on Earth, but it opens the door for theories about life on other planets.
