Scientist: Aliens may be big jellyfish
The Korea Herald
A British space expert says alien life forms might be large jellyfish-like creatures with organs that ingest atmospheric chemicals for nutrition.
Maggie Aderin-Pocock, who works for European space company Astrium, described her vision of what might have evolved on the Saturnian moon Titan for Science Month, a project by the TV channel Eden, the Belfast Telegraph reported. She also worked with an artist to visualize the aliens.
She said she was inspired partly by studying ocean life forms.
“Our imaginations are naturally constrained by what we see around us and the conventional wisdom has been that life needs water and is carbon-based,” Aderin-Pocock said. “But some researchers are doing exciting work, playing with ideas such as silicon-based life forms evolving on other planets in environments very different to our own. My vision of aliens is an inhuman, silicon-based life form that looks much more like a jellyfish than sci-fi‘s little green men.”

A lot of us already figured it, C... plus, you should scope-out my Deepstar Enigmatica thread.
Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, from the 1920's... Robert Bloch's The Slime... Derleth, Bradbury, Lin Carter, L. Sprague DeCamp... My own stuff, which I think we've discussed...
Ironically, their theoretical weakness would be water. They'd lose their 'shape'." Take Badlaw's body out to the gold-mine 'n toss it down a shaft. "
