In this Jan. 26, 2015 photo, Chilean biochemist Jenny Blamey, far right, walks with a member of her team in search of extreme organisms in Punta Hanna on Livingston Island, part of Antarctica's South Shetland Island archipelago. Deep below the ice is a cold and barren world that by all indications should be completely void of life. But recently, scientists researching melting ice discovered fish and shrimp-like creatures. And in areas that haven't been exposed to sunlight for millions of years, scientists found a surprise: the DNA of a microscopic creature that looks like a combination of a bear, manatee and centipede.

Life

  Ever the undiscouraged, resolute, struggling soul of man;
  (Have former armies fail'd? then we send fresh armies—and fresh again;)
  Ever the grappled mystery of all earth's ages old or new;
  Ever the eager eyes, hurrahs, the welcome-clapping hands, the loud
      applause;
  Ever the soul dissatisfied, curious, unconvinced at last;
  Struggling to-day the same—battling the same.
