f there is life out there, it probably doesn’t look anything like us. However, if a planet has the capacity to create and sustain life – whether as bacteria or as little green men – it is fairly certain that, like ourselves and other life forms on our own planet, alien life forms have evolved to survive and prosper in that environment. Just for fun, take the tests below to see if you can imagine what kinds of beings might live on the four planetary environments suggested. By clicking and dragging each one, take items from the pool of possible body parts, and attach them to the blank alien’s head, bearing in mind the conditions on each planet, and – build your own alien.
