 The Philae lander has detected organic molecules on the surface of its comet,

 OK - so organic molecules aren't life as we know it, but they were found on a 
measly comet. Pity we've lost the phone connection - just when the conversation 
was getting interesting.
 Cool! That's just the sort of thing it was after. Just think, they'll be more 
than 3.5 billion years old and the very same stuff that we are ultimately made 
of, sitting on a comet all that time. That's my sense of perspective satisfied 
for the day. Cheers!

 And apparently, they think Philae might come back to life when it gets closer 
to the sun. So maybe there's more..
