What is the Temperature Limit for Life?

Life as we know it on Earth can only live actively in a temperature range of -50-135 degrees fahreheit. Certain species may be able to survive this, except they will only be able to remain in a dormant state. Below this post I said that it is too hot for life. Is it? Can aliens possibly be adapted to temperatures? This is probable, except there would probably be an established temperature range designated at the beginning stages of evolution. This would be affected by enviornment, chemistry and the bodily processes of the organism. Once evolution has continued past the multi-cellular organism stage, life will not be as able to adapt to different temperatures. Their evolution and genetic codes will become more complex, designating certain enviornments in which something can live.
