So i was thinkin
and came up with this thought

how come nasa doesnt send those microbes and other simple organism that live in the harshest environments to other planets and moons and see how long they survive or even if they can evolve on other planets..

im pretty sure the evolution rate would vary from planet to planet

Interfering in the ecosystems of other Planets? That's rarely a recipe for a happy outcome, in my experience. It can lead to all sorts of repercussions.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

You know we can simulate just about any environment conceivable in a lab now right? What would justify the cost of such a mission?

the reason will show how successful those microbes would be on other planet and the answers can help us better understand evolution of other enviroments

How so?

Microbes don't care about a whole planet - all they care about is their little eco system. Plenty of opportunities to simulate that in a lab, rather inexpensively also.

No? let's see...

Atmosphere:check.
Temperature: check.
Humidity: check.
Soil content: check.
Radiation levels: check.
Solar energy: check
Wind/Rain: check

Anything else needed?

About the only thing we can't simulate is gravity and that wouldn't have much effect on bacteria any way.

Edit: we can simulate a heavier gravity though.

Depends if we were talking about artificial intelligence and self-replicating devices; then that too might have Consequences. I think introducing alien lifeforms into an ecosystem might have all sorts of consequences.

That's what aliens did here and we evolved from it. Then they came down after awhile and showed us how to build really, really, really good stone walls.

So you think sending a man made vehicle is the same as sending microorganisms to another planet? Are you serious?!

We send robotic vehicles etc to other planets to explore them and find out their history etc, not to "interfere".
