I'm not a scientist, and I don't play one on TV, but since ammonia is an excellent solvent and it is prevalent on planets like Jupiter and Neptune, as well as Saturn, what role do you think it might play in any possible formations of (non-carbon based) life forms? It seems to me, from a scant bit of research, that it would be limited, since it apparently cannot form "bridging" molecular structures, like Carbon can, but perhaps any system including NH3 and metals or silicon could arrange a "life-like" system? Is such a scenario plausible?

Is it too cynical to anticipate that the first cyclic 'message' to be discovered by SETI will be X-Rays from a natural reactor lensing through exotic crystals lying overhead?

Ammonia seems to be able to assist some life functions given its presence in giant squid and other deep sea creatures.
