The existence of extra-terrestrial life is one of the most compelling debates in science. When we ask "Are we alone?", we are wondering about how life itself begins, and what our place and function is in this universe.

Space.com is asking some very good questions about Planet 9 and 10 yet to be discovered and their potential to cause mass extinctions on Earth every 27 millions years, a very good report and "must read"

This discovery marks the first time ethyl alcohol, the same type in alcoholic beverages, has been observed in a comet. It means comets could have supplied Earth with life, as logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

A discovery of carbon from a long-decayed living organism inside volcanic rock indicates that life began on Earth 4.1 billion years ago, when Earth was still in a volcanic stage. Logged in Doomwatch Legacy by Sunstroke author David Kagan.

It is looking increasing unlikely that we are alone in the universe, but our current theories for extraterrestrial life are based on one key condition:
We Could Soon Prove If Life Began Outside The Solar System Or Not

Michael

The theory of panspermia is a controversial one. It has various forms, but the crux is this: Life originated beyond the Solar System and was spread through the galaxy, perhaps via drifting microbes, asteroids or even artificially by intelligent beings.
Comet Impacts May Have Produced The Building Blocks For Life On Earth

The theory that comets may have kick-started life on Earth 4 billion years ago in some shape or form is not entirely new. However, the latest research provides fresh evidence for the theory - and it could have implications for finding life on other worlds

Because there is very little that needs to be said once you see this video. Truth is, if you stop for a moment, and think, this entire moment you exist in, was many billions of years in the making... Enjoy it, it's your time now. Stephen Routsis

In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft flew by Enceladus and spotted plumes of water vapor and other materials gushing out its surface. If there's life in the solar system, the first place we're likely to find it is inside of those plumes.

Looks like there's another moon where life (as we know) could exist. New observations by the Hubble Space Telescope offers the strongest evidence yet for an ocean underneath the surface of Jupiter's largest moon, Ganymede.

Nearly all living organisms on Earth have water-based structures around their cells called phospholipid bilayers. These keep water in (or out), and they shelter the insides of our cells from the rest of the world.
Ancient Exoplanet Discovery Boosts Chances Of Finding Alien Life

One of the crucial variables in calculating the likelihood that alien life exists elsewhere in our galaxy is the number of stars that possess planetary systems, and the proportion of those planets that might be suitable for life.
