Here’s a story from a site called AskMoses.com (one that answered -or at least started to answer- a lot of the questions I used to have):

“When I was younger, I worked for the NASA program. And I looked for life on Mars. We spent hundreds of millions of dollars looking for life on Mars—for which, if you haven’t been thanked as taxpayers before, let me thank you. During that time I asked the Lubavitcher Rebbe, ‘Is this right? Can I really do this? Other religions say you shouldn’t search. And the Torah doesn’t say there’s life on Mars.’

The Rebbe replied in Yiddish, ‘Professor Green, you should look for life on Mars. And if you don’t find it there, you should look elsewhere. And if you don’t find it there, you should look elsewhere. Because for you to sit here and say that G-d didn’t create life elsewhere is to put limits on G-d, and no one can do that.’ “
