Sup Travellers?! Do you think that there is life on other planets? Some people may say yes and some people may say no but the fact of the matter is.....NO ONE KNOWS!!! There have been many claims of alien life but none have been confirmed. However, we do know that there is water in space. Back in September the BBC reported that a Mars rover found a surprising amount of water on Mars. No life has been found but water is one of the key ingredients to life, so there is a possibility that we are not alone in the Universe.

If finding water on Mars wasn't enough, astronomers managed to also find water vapor spewing out of Ceres, the dwarf planet. Ceres is located within our solar system along the asteroid belt and has been classified as the smallest dwarf planet and largest asteroid. If you consider the fact that Ceres spits out water from its surface one can conclude that it has a subsurface ocean capable of hosting life. Makes sense right?


As we speak there could probably be gargantuan sea creatures on there right now. I would assume that their skins would be very thick to withstand some of the high internal temperatures that are apparently causing water vapor to spew out into space. The vapor is spewing out of Ceres at a rate so high that scientists believe it could contain more fresh water than Earth, backing up the theory that our planet's water was brought by asteroids. 

"This is what you might call the 'smoking gun,'" the chief of the Planetary Science Institute tells NBC. "The implications could be huge for the future of astrobiology and planetary exploration." The find "raises the possibility that Ceres could replace Europa as the prime target for planetary investigation," he says. "It's going to upend the cart a bit, but that's science."

I don't have a doubt in my mind that there is life on other planets. I think that most of the life on other planets consists mainly of bacteria and marine life forms. I always had the idea that bacteria on other planets are not minuscule but actually really large. Large enough to consume humans. The nature of bacteria makes that very very possible. But who knows? Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
