All lifeforms across the entirety of the planet Earth have one thing in common, in that there is only one genetic code shared amongst all of the biological kingdoms, a singular chemical language handed down through the planet’s history, from the earliest single-celled creatures to the complex organisms that
Astronomers have been discovering the presence of terrestrial exoplanets (meaning rocky ones, like Mercury, Venus and Mars) around nearby stars for some time now, but aside from deducing their basic chemical makeup researchers can’t be sure if all the ingredients needed to make up a habitable, Earth-like world are present
