Sky Show "In Search of Cosmic Life"

Nature-loving Selena takes a field trip to the countryside with her elder brother Sunny, an engineering freshman. Under the starry sky, they met SPM-1, a mysterious robot that seems to know everything about life science.
It may seem absurd for a robot to tell humans things about life, but we owe robots for their explorations of potentially habitable places in the Universe, and discoveries of organic substances which are the building blocks of life.
In our newly produced Sky Show "In Search of Cosmic Life", audiences will appreciate the uniqueness of the Earth for life to flourish, and will examine those celestial bodies which scientists have found liquid water or organic compounds. Liquid water is essential to life because it is the medium for most of the biochemical reactions, and the occurrence of organic compounds in space may be a hint that life could exist elsewhere than Earth. Audiences will also hear different views of scientists on whether extraterrestrial life could ever be found. Space missions such as Stardust, Kepler and OSIRIS-REx will also be introduced.
So what is your take on cosmic life? Yea or nay?
