Water Found On Extra Solar Planet

This was pretty interesting. It really doesn’t surprise me at all, since Hydrogen is the most common element in the universe and Oxygen is the third most abundant element. Pretty cool that they found signs of water outside the solar system.

It’s things like this that make me really believe there is other life in the universe besides Earth. I’d be surprised if there were forms of life on Earth that we never thought were possible. There are forms of life that live in the bottom of the ocean where there is no sunlight after all. There are microbes that live in the core of nuclear reactors. All of these are places where scientists expected that life would not be able to, not be able to exist.

I hope to be alive still when life gets discovered on other planets. I’d love to see some people’s reactions when we find out we’re really not that special. I wonder what the religious types would think.
