    About the sense of exchange of currency in animals..in India there are many states with monkeys residing...in Vrindavan, Mathura monkeys snatch your items like purse,glasses or phone & won't return it unless you exchange them with some eatable item. It really happened in front of me. This is very common for the people living in Vrindavan..

    i’m really confused. why did scientists just decide that life needs a temperature within a set range and that it needs water? how do they know that other life forms can’t survive in reallt hot or reallt cold temps? it seems like they just decided that everything life on earth needs must be needed for other life. i just don’t understand why they defined it like they did.

    • N Horvath

      Well essentially, Earth is our only example. We search for life that is built like us because we assume that since we, the only life we've found, evolved the way we did, it's probably a common method for other life to evolve similarly. Not only that, it's hard to know what to look for if not for our kind of life. We don't know what kind of compounds or chemicals are common in silicon life forms, so we can't really search for them from afar.

    Maybe the fact that we are on the far edge of an unremarkable galaxy means that aliens just haven’t bothered to look here yet since there are so many other habitable planets to look at. You say quadrillions of habitable planets, so if an alien race looked at one habitable planet a day and we were the last planet looked at it would take about a zillion years to get to us.

    While playing Stellaris, I realized at some point how uninterested I was in lifeforms that were just living without the knowledge of space flight. Maybe there is some truth to it. We do have scientists who spend their entire lives studying earthworms, but most of us just walk on by when we see one.

    If our solar system is travelling at 782,000 KPH why don't we fly off out into space once we have left the atmosphere? I get it, its gravity. But once our satellites are out in deep space where gravity does not have much of an effect..... Out there why doesn't the solar system zoom off at 782,000 KPH leaving our satellite behind? And if you could TRULY make the satellite stationery would the rest of the solar system zoom off at 782,000 KPM? A thought experiment, have fun :)
