Who's to say that life elsewhere won't find H2O to be poisonous? Even here on Earth we have life thriving around deep ocean vents that find Oxygen poisonous. When the chemical process first began for the creation of multi-celled organisms here on Earth, O2 was actually a lethal gas, and did not resemble the so called life sustaining element we know it as today.
The universe works in a "binary code" of numbers its what creates non linear events to happen on earth and other places. Through various means the numbers which are part of mathematical physics can be moved or replace to reshuffle events. Earth has a certain frequency which alien craft can tap into kind of like a "number radar" if earths frequency is picked up on their system the shift in the binary signal is registered then "they know we are here" so to speak. When they first discovered earth I don't know.
There is a binary number for every event that ever happens. This includes gravity, speed. friction, inertial and many others.
The only problem I have with this is HOW do we create gravitational forces strong enough to do this? how do we create and manipulate gravity to begin with?

This may have been discussed before, if so, sorry...
lastly there is no need to travel in a bodily form,its only really your consciosness thats needs to travel,if conscionsess can be encoded/digitised then it can be transfered via the qauntum entanglment method(if the information paradox is nulified) and thus you can instantly be anywhere you want in the universe if theres a body waiting for you at the destionation point.
