The Antarctic’s upside-down anemones puzzle scientists

But scientists are perplexed and have yet to figure out how the invertebrates are able to survive in such harsh conditions. One researcher said that if you took one of the anemones and placed it in ice in a freezer, it would die.

According to a press release, NASA is also interested in the finding because the discovery could add to their investigation of the possibility of life under the ice of Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
