Is there life on other planets?

Post by Fred Webber » Sat Aug 19, 2017 3:11 pm

Do you think that there is life on other planets anywhere else? I am fascinated and excited when think about the size of the universe, but it gives me a question. Is our planet really such unique?

Is there life on other planets besides earth?

There is a new discovery of a huge icy comet giving away alcohol and other molecules (of an organic origin?).

NASA Researchers say: "DNA Building Blocks Can Be Made in Space".

NASA scientists have been claiming three times that they've found (3) meteorites (like this one meteorite) containing fossil micro-organisms originated in outer space, however, there are some problems to prove it:

  • The biological classification (for life) says that the living things don't include any dead fossils unable to reproduce and unable to do anything else what living organisms do so far. It is almost impossible to prove that those fossils were once alive. If it is not alive then it is not a life. On the other hand, you are able to say that some of cave crystals (and some other minerals) are alive, while they are able to grow, reproduce, start some chemical/biological processes and evolve. Recently, NASA formed their own definition for life.
  • If they pick up them from the ground (sand, ice, water...). It is almost impossible to prove that fresh micro-organisms inside of the cosmic rock is not just a random bacteria from the Earth as well as any other organic material in pores of the rocks.
