Finding Life Beyond Earth

Speaking of PBS and NOVA (is it possible to have a crush on a science program?), here is another awesome documentary that aired last week about the current prospects we have for finding other life out there in the universe, from Mars to Titan to exoplanets, we are searching in so many places that it is inevitable that we find something sooner or later. The fact that life is made from the most abundant chemicals available, and our understanding of how durable and flexible life can be in the most extreme environments, it really opens the doors to searching in some unforgiving areas of the cosmos for our fellow life forms. Once we find them, it will truly be a game-changer for mankind.
