YES!!! We've only been able to look for life on one other planet (mars), but even then the experiment is filled with controversy. When you consider
there could be two billion other earth-analogs in our galaxy and tens of billions of other (larger) earth-like planets in the same galaxy, and then
you account for billions of years of time and billions of other galaxies, then it makes perfect sense that until we find life on another planet we
should assume earth is the only planet that has it.
Did you know our galaxy along with (many!) others is headed towards a region of space some 250 million light years away that has 10 quadrillion times
more mass than our sun?
It's called The Great Attractor. Maybe we'll find life there, if we're lucky.
New research says there're bigger things 250 million light years beyond The Great Attractor.
So maybe whatever it's that's beyond The Great Attractor will have life. We'll keep looking.

No need to go to far.
The universes are actually within you! You are within them.
Infinity is all there is. It is all COSMIC.
I used to think the sun was cooling and life from Mars bailed out to Earth.
I looked long and hard at Venus. I wondered when the sun cooled a little more,
could we all bail out to Venus?
Would the toxic gasses of Venus finally culminated into an Earth like biosphere??
I thought why not devise a way to take some of the gasses from Venus and siphon them to Mars.
Then we would have THREE PLANETARY INHABITAL land masses in a neat little row.
Do you know why that hasn't happened???
yeah me neither, nasa mumble na mumble
The atmosphere of Venus is much denser and hotter than that of Earth. The temperature at the surface is 740 K (467 °C, 872 °F), while the pressure
is 93 bar. The Venusian atmosphere supports opaque clouds made of sulfuric acid, making optical Earth-based and orbital observation of the surface
impossible. Information about the topography has been obtained exclusively by radar imaging. The main atmospheric gases are carbon dioxide and
nitrogen. Other chemical compounds are present only in trace amounts.
