In fact, in our same galaxy there are different planets such as Mars, also called "the red planet" because of its red surface, where many investigation centers are making studies and research. For example, the NASA confirmed that the robot Opportunity, sent to Planet Mars in 2004, found evidence that there was water in the surface. Although there isn't any evidence of extraterrestrial life, the probability that terrestrial conditions are replicated outside the Earth are very high.

Second, it would be a mistake to think that we are alone in this Universe whose dimensions are considered as infinite. Our planet is insignificant compared to the Universe. We have not even had the opportunity to explore it all and discover what is around us. Nowadays, we know that many other planetary systems similar to ours, where there might be life, have been found. This has been considered by a lot of writers and Scientifics who defend the hypothesis of extraterrestrial life. For instance, Carl Sagan, wrote numerous scientific articles and books where he affirmed that we are not alone. He was also one of the people who helped with the SETI project, which consists of the "search of extraterrestrial intelligence". Thanks to the development of technology, this kind of research is improving more and more every day. It let us find...
