From "Through the Wormhole: What Do Aliens Look Like?" on the Science Channel, it is assumed that extraterrestrial life would be both carbon and water-based like us. But due to many factors, including differences in evolution and gravity, life on another planet could be very different from what we know on Earth. Life could be as simple as microbes. But will we ever be truly satisfied until we find intelligent life like us?
An article by Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer, SETI Institute on Space.com suggests extraterrestrial life might be humanoid, like us. And at a former exhibit in Montreal, scientists displayed plausible displays of aliens that might live on other planets with what we would consider, extreme conditions. Those lifeforms resembled creatures on Earth who live in extremely high temperatures and in acidic conditions. Be sure to check out the flying whales, animals that look like plants, and more.
So, what do YOU think aliens might look like?
