- Extra terrestrial life
One of the biggest debates amongst scientists is whether or not life exists on
other planets, or as they call it extraterrestrial life. Famous scientists like Carl
Sagan and Stephen Hawking think that life surely exists elsewhere, that Earth
doesn’t occupy a unique position in the universe. Numerous scientists since
many centuries have been searching for life both in the solar system and
exoplanets, such as the SETI ( Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) that uses

- effect of temperature on endotherms
This study examines the difference in metabolic rates between an endotherm and ectotherms, and between different ectotherms. Endotherms are animals that maintain a constant body temperature even when the temperature of their environment fluctuates. In contrast, ectotherms are animals whose temperature is regulated by their environment. It was hypothesized that an endothermic rat would have a higher metabolic rate than ectothermic crickets, worms, and a snake since it has to work harder to mainta...
