    Basicaly, all life, as we knew it, is made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrous, oxygen, sulpher, and phosphorus.
    What they did was take life (micro-organisms) which thrive in an arsenic rich lake, but still uses phosphorus as its back-bone in its DNA, and totaly remove the phosphorus. now that SHOULD have killed the micro-organism, but instead the micro-organism replaces the phosphorus with the arsenic and its DNA structure, and still thrived. which means we now have an arsenic based life-form.
    Now when they look at other planets for life, instead of only searching places rich in the top named elements, they will also have to check in arsenic rich areas, with the other top 5 elements, and not just sulpher!

    it wasn't an extra-terestrial life form as such, but its basicaly re-written what we know about biology from the ground up and broadens the horizons for how we look for life on other planets :)
