Associates are Different

Amid fresher's life, every one of them faces with decent variety of assessments inside the grounds group. It isn't outsider, on the off chance that somebody idolizes pizza and abhor for soup. We should get the considering circumstance for instance.

Ichthysaur's jaw bone has been found!

Paleontologists from Manchester University found 205-million year-old jaw bone of a prehistoric reptile belongs to 'one of the largest animals ever' (bigger than the blue whale). It's the jaw bone of giant Ichthyosaur. Now, when dinosaurs were hip-hopping on the land few of their cousins jumped into the sea and became the aquatic reptiles. Those few cousins appeared like a huge fish with limbs modified into flippers and…

SES 311 Blog 3: Artificial Intelligence

In the search for intelligent life, it is very possible for us to encounter an artificial intelligence created by a species more advanced than us. A sufficiently advanced form of AI could be indistinguishable from natural intelligence as we know it. The question of intelligence questions what we think is true of intelligent and sentient life forms. How would we distinguish between the two, and if we encounter an AI vs another species, do we accept them as a representative of their creators?…

Searching for signs of extraterrestrial life

Lately, there has been more peer discussion about how we go about searching for life off planet earth. A few places within our solar system were identified as good targets to begin the search for life, among them: the Moon, Mars, Titan and Enceladus. We need to begin the search with patience. 

Our Moon is the closest celestial body to us. The LRO is currently taking pictures, but a new mission to establish an out post on the moon should begin. Why not get very good about getting to…

Europa, Enceladus, and Titan

Based on recent readings, especially from Christopher McKay in How to Search for Life on Other Worlds, I’ve come to believe that life only needs the right combination of three main requirements: a main solvent to host chemical reactions (ours on Earth being water), a mixture of common building-block elements (Carbon, Hydrogen, Oxygen, Phosphorus, Nitrogen, Sulfur are examples of this), and enough energy to cause chemical reactions.  In Astrobiology lecture, we have discussed life…

What is LIFE???

Everyone have there own opinion about life. Some believe it was created by some supernatural powers /God. And some believe that it was not created, it was an accidental process that is still in existence. 

Does all this really makes sense?  We don't have proof, that how life begin on Earth? Did it really begin here or, was seeded on Earth as in the Theory of Panspermia.  Maybe life began here on Earth by the…

Defining Life

Before we discuss actual examples of unearthly life, it would be prudent to set forth a solid definition of what life actually entails. For my own worldbuilding purposes, I have composed a simple set of requirements for something to be defined as alive:

> Inertia-independent reaction to stimulus, however slight and regardless of speed.

> The independent production/collection and storage of energy within the entity in question for biological…

The Most Adaptable Species

When we think of the most adaptable species, what comes to mind? Camels are able to survive without food or water for months, cockroaches are said to have survived the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II, and Emperor Penguins are able to make journeys 60+ miles long with their last meal being four months earlier. All of these species are very well suited towards their particular environment, but if one were to put a camel in Antarctica, or an emperor penguin in the Gobi…

Metabolism or RNA first? Blog 2

There have been many arguments to determine which function of life came first. The ability to use energy or the ability to record and transfer genetic information. To me it seems very contradictory to discern which one of them came first because it appears that life as we know it could not have existed without both simultaneously working.

 

There is no logical purpose for the efficient use of energy to exist if there was no way to transfer that information onto the next…
