Thinking Outside The Box

Recently, researchers have found evidence of water pools on Saturn's moon Enceladus. Many experts believe that such a find, coupled with the right conditions of oxygen and an abundant food supply, could yield life elsewhere other than Earth. Honestly, I think these scientists, due to the very nature of their work, really need to start thinking outside the box. If life exists somewhere else in the universe, why must it adhere to the same rules as ours. As we all know, it has been proven time and time again that a living organism will adapt to it's surrounding environment in order to survive. So maybe ... just maybe, extraterrestrial life may thrive in places that organisms from Earth cannot. You would think when twenty-some scientists all sat around together (for who knows how many years waiting for this space probe to get there), someone would have already come up with this theory.
