Carbon-based life is the amalgamation of living beings that use carbon-containing molecules for structural, energetic or genetic storage purposes; which is the totality of all life in the universe known so far.[1] Though life based on elements other than carbon might be featured in science fiction or fantasy, extraterrestrial life possessing a similar biochemistry to Earth life is still a trope in both genres.
