Our animal kingdom is amazing and growing more and more every day. The oceans are said to be filled with creatures and fish that we have never even heard of while the forests reveal new species to us frequently as well. There will probably never be a day in the future where every animal on this planet is discovered and classified, it is quite frankly unrealistic. While facing the odds, many scientists are looking away from Earth for life. Honestly, life may be found on another planet before we discover all of the life here at home.
If you don’t believe me then check out the new infographic posted by NASA (located below). NASA’s chief scientist actually believes that by the year 2025 we will have certainly found extraterrestrial life on a planet other than our own. Crazy stuff huh?
