      Hi Cayla,
      There has been a lot evidence to show that there could potentially be life on other planets, such as Mars. These include current and past conditions, which would have favoured the development of life. For example, the Curiosity rover on Mars has found a lot of evidence showing that there used to be a lot of water on Mars during a time when life was formed on Earth. This, however, is no evidence for life existing on Mars today or that it developed there in the past. We can only hope that one day we’ll find fossils of this possible Martian life or maybe it might be hiding somewhere under the surface today as well!
