Response to a Wikipedia article
One sentence form this article that stands out for me is: " Scientists are directly searching for evidence of unicellular life within the solar system, carrying out studies on the surface of Mars and examining meteors which have fallen to Earth. A mission is also proposed to Europa, one of Jupiter's moons with a possible liquid water layer under its surface, which might contain life." I think this statement is important because it shows the importance of my topic, and how science values it.
I'm pretty sure this is accurate, because at the bottom of the page I clicked the link "The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in the Optical Spectrum" located at the bottom of the page.
Another sentence that I saw was: Alien life, such as bacteria, has been theorised by scientists such as Carl Sagan to exist in our solar system and quite possibly throughout the universe although no samples have been found. This sentence didn't exactly stand out for me it was the diigo sticky not that did. The sticky note read "Where is the evidence that bacteria exist else where?". This stood out for me because I didn't recall the article directly stating where the evidence was gathered.
I double-checked this fact on a google search which makes me fell pretty sure that it is true.
What I learned from this article is that my question is highly disputed and any possibilities of it's outcome being a yes can be easily contradicted, and I will look to see how this article changes in the future because I was intrigued by it. I didn't find anything that I thought might have been an error so I will continue to look at this article to see what was an error on the discussion page. I will also return to this article to see if any important, relevant changes are made.
