All varieties of bacteria and quite a number of fungi will grow in just about any non-toxic environments.  Some will even grow in toxic environments.  Why?  Because life is very persistent and will take advantage of any environment they find that falls within the temperature and pH limits they find.

Life, in one form or another, will persist on this planet until the day it is consumed by the sun in another 4.5 billion (or so) years.  I personally don't plan on sticking around for that.

Well, this page says that life will be extinct in 4.5 billion years and the sun will consume the planet in 7.5 billion years.  Still don't plan on sticking around for that.
