Does life exist throughout the Universe and, in particular, on the planets of our solar system? In this book the authors make an attempt to answer this question on the basis of the latest information in natural science. The contents of the book were thoroughly discussed by both authors. The introduction and the concluding chapter were written by the two authors jointly. The first chapter belongs to the pen of A. Oparin, the rest to V. Fesenkov.

The book was translated from the Russian by A. Mishne and published by Foreign Languages Publishing House in 1957.
