Is There Life Outside Of Earth???
The Question: For this assignment you will think of the big question, “Is there life out there?” One of the great challenges for astronomers has been locating planets and trying to find one like our own planet, one that can support life. There are a number of issues associated with this. Does all life require liquid water? Is a planet like Earth very unique? How many other planets are out there?
My Response: Neil Armstrong once said "This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Well, if getting the moon was one giant leap for mankind, I think we would need to take around 1,000 leaps just to get out of our galaxy. We are not that far advanced yet, we can't even get human- beings anywhere except for the moon! The question that so many wonder is: Is there a life out there? I honestly think there is, but we couldn't know for sure. When that question is asked, people's reaction is usually, aliens, Area 51 or Martians! I would be ecstatic if we could just find a small plant or harmless bacteria. We shouldn't think too big for again, our technology isn't advanced enough. If there were another life out there, let’s say aliens, and then hopefully their technology would be advanced enough to make the trip here. I don't think that all life needs water to survive, but all known life needs water to survive. I also think that yes, earth is a very unique planet and that there is not many or any like it!

About the Blogger
I am Disha...I have many interests and they are very diverse. I love English, Math and Science. I also love music, art and sports. I enjoy listening to all kind of music, whether it be classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop or rap. Often I express my creativity through painting, songs, and writing. I enjoy Science and Math because those are the two subjects that explain why things are the way they are. My favorite part of Science is the labs. I mostly enjoy hands-on experiments. I look forward to doing labs because they are so much fun, interesting and explain our notes. I am very daring person, I always try new things. I have been snorkeling with sharks and stingrays, held boa constructors that weigh more than me and have been parasailing over the glistening oceans in the Bahamas. I am also a big traveler; I have been to over 15 different countries since I was 6 months old. Some of the places I have been are France, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Spain, London, India, and Dubai. I guess you can say that my interests are all over the place :) I hope you come to visit my blog often!
