Zoologger: 'Living beach ball' is giant single cell — Weird science, dept of benthic biology. (Thanks to danjite.)

Their work, reported today in the journal Nature, provides a new tool for ground-based observatories, promising to accelerate by years the search for prebiotic, or life-related, molecules on planets orbiting stars beyond our solar system.
