Due: Friday 11:59 pm

Collins Type 3

Focus Correction Areas (FCAs)
1) Must be at least 150 words
2) Must include at least 3 Word Wall words.
3) Must be in paragraph format and answer the question.

We discussed the 7 characteristics that all life forms share on Earth, but what about elsewhere? Consider the following:
Mars rover Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012 to search for evidence of past or current life on Mars.
Scientists have discovered that Jupiter's moon Europa has environmental conditions that could support life.
Astronmers estimate that our Milky Way alone contains 11 billion Earth-like planets orbiting sun-like stars.
The SETI institute uses a variety of tools to search for evidence of extraterrestrial life.

Do you think that extraterrestrial life would share all 7 characteristics of life that we see here on Earth? Why or why not?
