Is it possible for a terra/oceana that are about 200 atmosphere thick to have life on them???????

Also how hot does a planet have to get for life to no longer exist?

Can rogue planets have life?

Lenovo g500s Core I3 2.4ghz dual core, 4GB ram, Intel HD 4000 graphics :(

1. Maybe. There's life in our deepest oceans where the pressure is similar and they survive fine, so theres a good chance even a planet with a superthick atmosphere could support some type of life.

2. If you mean in SE, I'm not sure, but irl life has a hard time above 170 degrees Fahrenheit, though there are extremophiles that live in boiling water, so really I'm not sure if there's a true "upper limit" besides the melting point of Carbon.

3. Irl they technically could with the right conditions, but there would be no plants because there wouldn't be enough light for photosynthesis, so ecosystems work work very differently. Though in SE these haven't been implemented yet so they can't have life yet x-P

Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.
