Honors Biology summer HW; Can you please check over it?
Personally, I do believe that life exists elsewhere in the universe. While we haven’t been able to confirm the idea of life beyond Earth, NASA had already confirmed that liquid water flows at irregular intervals on Mars - not to mention that there had been a mission to discover that of a global ocean lying beneath the cold crust of one of Saturn’s moons. Water is something necessary to all life, and as such, this gives reason to believe that there is, at the very least, the possibility of life on places other than Earth.
So what are the basic characteristics of life? List all the characteristics that you can think of.
The basic characteristics of all life are that of being composed of one or more cells, the ability to reproduce, to be capable of both growth and development, as well as acquiring and using energy, and responding to the environment and/or maintaining homeostasis.
