When searching for alien planets that could host extraterrestrial life, scientists should broaden their minds beyond "Earth-like planets," researchers say.

It makes perfect sense to me, who knows what varied forms of life have occurred under far different conditions to our own planet.

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Makes perfect sense indeed, if you think about the possibility of Silicon base life form, instead of carbon like us(per example).



All known life on Earth is built upon carbon and carbon-based compounds. Yet the possibility has been discussed that life elsewhere may have a different chemical foundation – one based on the element silicon.

but for silicon based life form to breath oxygen is a little problem, maybe they would breath something like sulfur instead.

Like some on said on the link comments; "I just hope we can find Humans on earth first... have you seen any, lately?"

We should think about finding our own humanity and caring of our life here on earth before looking for somewhere else...

This makes sense since we have no idea what causes life in the first place.

Science fiction writers have suggested this for years.
But that isn't anything new, either.

Is this not exactly what we have been contemplating for years? I thought we were trying to get something together to burrow into Europa.

Indeed so.

Testing a Europa Probe Prototype

Just one example and I am sure there are even olde articles around.

Not to trample on anyone's parade, but if silicon based life is as slow as it is suggested in that video above, would we really call that "life"?

Oh, I am gonna have a big, fat turkey full of stuffing with all the side dishes and lots of gravy in the best US tradition :blush: I can't, however, even begin to fathom what you will be conjuring up in your FTL capable smoker....:P

Happy Thanksgiving to you too, albeit I am sure I will be around on Thursday to say the same :)

That was just a movie. Considering out pool of one, it seems highly likely that our model of a bipedal creature with opposable thumbs is a design that will assit the climb to intelligence. Therefore I suspect most Intelligent Aliens will look somewhat similar to us. As with convergent evolution on our own planet, whereby we saw Marsupials that look just like canines, I feel our model is likely to lead to success in other environments as well.

Of course for life, that parameter is fairly open.
