Likewise, dae circumstantial evidence is mountlng:for extraterrestrial life. Take Mars as an example. We w~.ognize that Mars contains a large amotmt of water ice beneath its surface (Phoenix lander - 2008). We know that up to 3 5 billion years ago, Mars was Very wet. There were briny I oceans, fresh water lakes, and rivers on the Red Planet. We see this ha the mapped topography of Mars, but also in the stratified sedimentary rocks and clay deposits that have been photographed and chemically analyzed by past and current rovers. In addition, present day seepage of liquids, most likely water, have bee~ observed ntanerous thnes tin'oqgh repeated satellite photography of promising water-preduc.ed features.

In addition. Enceladus and Titan, moons of Saturn; Emopa, a moon of Jupiter; and Triton, Uranus' largest satellite, are all possible candidates for life. In 1838 Friedrich Bessel proved the Copernican theory to be correct by successfully observing the parallax of a nearby sire', 61 Cygni, the tiny shill of position ew.ated by ou~r Earth's revolution around the sun and ottr observations of that star from two different perspectives.
