Life in the Universe; Part 1


Is there life ( extraterrestrial life or any other form of life) elsewhere in the universe.....a universe consisting of millions of galaxies, nebulas, blackholes, millions and millions of stars, unknown planets and other heavenly bodies millions of light years away from our solar system ? This we don't know, but we must bear in mind not to rule out the possibility of the existance of some form of life.

Life inside our solar system

The earth, as we already know, is unique in terms of life. It's size, atmosphere, temperature, distance from the sun, oxygen, and liquid water make earth a planet of life.

The remaining planets are not capable of sustaining life, the reasons being; extreme temperatures, no liquid water, etc. Mars in fact,is the only planet in our solar system where life may have existed, life meaning microscopic life.From a scientist point of view, it's unlikely to encounter martian life in the form of extraterrestrials.

What about the "face" on Mars?

The "face" on Mars is considered by some as evidence of extraterrestrial life on this planet. The face in the Cydonia region is actually a natural formation, hill or mountain and is not an artificial structure created by extraterrestrials ( aliens). And what about water and life on Europa one of Jupiters innermost satellites? Allthough there is no evidence of liquid water on any of the planets, scientists believe liquid water may exist underneath Europa's ice crust.

Search for life ( extraterrestrial life and other forms of life ) in the universe

With today's most modern and advanced space technology,unmanned space probes and other forms of spacecraft,telescopes,it has become possible to explore unknown heavenly bodies far beyond our field of vision.....to unlock the mysteries of the universe.....to gather space data..... If there is life out there, scientists will find it.

SETI - Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Project Phoenix

The purpose of Project Phoenix run by the SETI institute is to detect signals coming from unknown intelligence.

SETI focuses on certain stars which appear to be orbited by potentially inhabited planets.

A radio telescope is used in the process.

There are, of course, other radio telescopes in different countries searching space for extraterrestrial signals.
