      Hi @winnie13
      I believe there is yes! The Universe is soooo big, that there has got to be a chance that the set of circumstances that allowed life to form on this planet have happened somewhere else.

      I also really really want it to be true!!

      What do you think??

      I agree – I think there is a good chance there is. Plus, as a scientist I feel i can’t say no for definite as we dont know for definite! I also hope there is. However, I think it will take a long time to find out and I’m not sure we’ll know in my lifetime. Or if we’ll ever know!

      I definitely think there’s (probably) life somewhere else! I am not an astronomer, but, if you listen to people like Professor Brian Cox on the TV, it would actually be more surprising if there WEREN’T life anywhere else. The Universe is so big that it MUST have life somewhere else in it.
