Not to scare the crap out of everyone but some life forms seem very capable of survival. Some that may not even be a life form. :ohno: What did Michael Crichton write? “Life will find a way.”

We're talking about extreme heating from reentry, and turning things into blobs of plasma.

I think you are on to something. Earth biology might need to conform to rules but life might take on any form physics has to offer as long as it reaches a structural complexity. Synaptic plasticity might arise spontaneously once enough connections are generated and maintained. Maybe we are all black holes because we are just complex enough?

Eh, probably not. :no:
