One of the oldest questions humans have asked since looking at the sky has been if life exists beyond our planet. Follow cosmic clues from the ocean floor to a journey across the galaxy. What might extremophiles here on Earth tell us about the ability of life to thrive in other locations in our universe?  Learn how new discoveries of exoplanets and water in our own solar system plays into this cosmic quest for other life forms beyond Earth. Find out how scientists are using new tools to look for places where life might be possible in our own galaxy.
