I think there is. Well by definition we are in fact life on another planet, from every other planet out there.

But the odds have to be very very low. Its not just abut being in the goldilocks zone (where water can exist in liquid, solid and gas), there has to be a decent moon, we cannot exist without the moon. There also has to be a rotating iron core as that gives us a magnetic field so we are protected from the Suns radiation. And there has to be a source of water from comets and meteorites bombarding the early planet as we had. So, a formation of a new solar system needs to put all that together for the narrow window of the goldilocks zone.

Agree, it will be life but maybe not as we know it!

Reminds me, the new Cosmos is coming soon... March 9 I believe (US)

I think the core elements everywhere in the universe are the same, so I feel life will be based on the same basis as on Earth, although the evolution from micro organisms would differ depending on the planets makeup. Having said that we have a wide variety of stuff here, not thinking animals so much as what exists in strange places, such as the deep sea life we have. We have life in boiling sulphur pools, and the deep sea gas leaks from the mantle. Water + Amino acids + electricity, they all exist out there.

From there evolves multi cell and complex life forms as happened here? If a planet can support life, no reason it cannot evolve, IMO. Earth is proof

If there isn't you can always make some on a 3D printer.

Is there life elsewhere in our universe? Life as we know it, no. There is no planet like earth. We unique. Is there life outside our universe? Well if you believe in the spiritual side of life, and that life itself has a creater, then yes there is life outside our universe.

What happened 1 microsecond before the big bang? Science will never know.

There's a very good image on Wikipedia that attempts to show the scale of the universe. I think that with all things being equal, life will have arisen independently millions of times throughout the universe. I don't think our little planet is particularly special.

Has to be. How else did we evolve? Have you never heard of Erik von Daniken??

On a rested note: if the universe is expanding, into what is it expanding? i.e. if you imagine the universe to be a balloon slowly inflating inside a box, what is the box?

not so easy. once you get into theoritical physics, newtonian physics as we know it begin to break down.

there is no empty space. time depends on speed - the faster you are the more time begin to slow until it might be possible to freeze it such that you can travel back in time. and a straight line is not straight.

the space as is you know it is probably filled with dark energy and gravity (the un-discovered particle being the graviton, far more significant that the higgs boson which does not get theoritical physicists anywhere really)

hence the universe does not expand into anything. in fact universe is relative. your universe and thor's universe are different. yet part of the multiverse.

and did time begin at the big bang? not a chance, it began before that ... but ... but ... :D

uhhh, time is an illusion. we live in a 3d holographic projection and what we perceive as time is not.
