Is there life elsewhere in the solar system?


Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 26 Jan 2010

We don't know if life exists elsewhere in the solar system.

The searches on Mars so far have not revealed anything conclusive despite a few news story about chemicals that suggest life having been found in Martian material. The jury is still out on whether there really was life in the past or even now under the surface. If there is then it seems certain it is simple organisms not multi-cellular. And even if found it being of independent origin to life on earth would need to be found.

The best candidates now seem to be some of the moons of the gas giants, and particularly it seems that possibly some moons of Jupiter and Saturn, moons like Europa, could potentially have life. But it's too early to tell.
