Somewhere Out There...

Our Solar System

(Image Source: Space.com)

Happy Earth Day!

It seems pretty suspicious to us that our rock is the only one we've found life on so far, but all that could change in an instant. We asked fans to answer the question...

Where do you think life might be found next in our solar system?

And the results are in!

Where will we find life next?

Have other ideas? Let us know in the comments below!

meaningless icon! I could retire to Mars. 1/3 gravity would feel great on old joints. Bonus: even a cell phone camera totally owns Astronomy Picture of the Day on Mars. Look at all that science to be done, and me still sitting on Earth.....

meaningless icon! What about Planet X? The newest and most geeky addition to our system that science is not even sure if it's there or not.

meaningless icon! I believe there could be life somewhere else in our solar system! To quote Jurassic Park, "Life finds a way..." However I think its more likely that life would exist is another solar system.

meaningless icon! Alright, I'm fairly certain there might not be life in OUR solar system, aside from possibly microbes on Mars, but.... We're one tiny solar system in a massive galaxy, in a mass of galaxies in an infinite cosmos. There is NO way we're alone. Are we going to meet the beings of this far off galaxy? Probably not for a while, but.... who knows.

meaningless icon! I believe there is intelligent life out there, maybe not in our solar system. but life does find a way. I also think maybe we have to stop killing each other first before they will actually contact us.

meaningless icon! Not all life forms are bi-pedal or even quadra-pedal, so long as there is bacterial [or similar] life forms there is life. I think Saturn and Jupiters' moons may just supply them.

meaningless icon! I agree with Rex-Wil in that we will most likely find life outside of our solar system. But, I do have to say that I'm not against the idea of other life existing within our solar system. It could be life that we don't even recognize as life or it could be that earthlings discover life on an eleventh planet in a parallel universe (gotta love the many worlds theory).

meaningless icon! Are we talking intelligent life? Using that logic,there are places on earth we still haven't found life (looking at you Florida)

meaningless icon! I'm still a huge fan of J.J. Abrams' Fringe, so I'm gonna say if life is out there, it's in an alternate universe. Because Faux-livia and Walternate are just too cool to live inside a TV show.

meaningless icon! Yeah! I'll have lot of friends on Europa, I wish Geek stuff available there!!

meaningless icon! I think it would be interesting to find something that causes us to change our definition of "life". Why do we limit ourselves to looking at planets that have water? There could quite possibly be creatures that do not require water to thrive. As for intelligent life, i'm not sure we humans can even claim that one!

meaningless icon! Not gonna take a chance on Europa. I mean, I'd likely get nicely settled, and then some random black monolith will show up and say: ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS, EXCEPT EUROPA. ATTEMPT NO LANDINGS THERE. It'd be just my luck. . .

meaningless icon! We might even find new life right here on Earth, just saying. BTW why is the picture of the picks cut off so we cant see all of it.
