      @bucho98: It is almost certain that on another planet a long way away that there is life. Just as when I was young it was believed that our galaxy was it and not we know there are some 80 Billion Galaxies, we will discover there is life on many planets. But do not get your hopes up too much. We have some very intelligent life-forms on this planet – dolphins and elephants to take but two examples and we have a devil of a job talking to them in any meaningful way! Regards Robin

      Yes definitely! It is just too far away for us to find. The scientists have found loads of planets that they think are like Earth recently, but I don’t think the life will be like us.
