After reading the article Scientists surprised by data about distant planet. I was wondering when it comes to finding life elsewhere in universe why do scientists look for atmosphere or water on the alien planets ?
Can’t there be life that totally defies the science we have known ? A life form that breathes sulphur-di-oxide or the one that can survive in extreme temperature.
I guess the answer lies in the question itself. How can we think of something that is beyond the science we have known ?
