Life under glass

Ok, not glass but ice. My wife forwarded this article to me that I found pretty interesting. It seems that life has been found in the frozen region under a glacier with no air or light. The microbes were living off of iron, converting it to energy. Fascinating stuff considering what the implications could be for research of life on other planets.
