    Exobiologists understand that there may be life forms that do not require water, even life forms that are not carbon based. However, all life we are presently aware of does require water. There are theoretical reasons for suspecting that all life will require water, or some other liquid medium. With limited funds to explore we are betting on the most probable result and so are focused on finding water first and foremost.

    The smartest experts on life appreciate that if it isn't compatible with water we can't cook it and eat it.
