Awesome/terrifying report on io9 here.

‘Shostak also admitted that the discovery reaffirms the idea that life could have emerged in the Galaxy a long time ago. “It’s been possible to have worlds with life for quite some time now,” he said, “there could be life out there that’s billions of years old.”‘
