In the dim recesses of high school Biology, I remember hearing that the test for whether a system was alive or not was the acronym: SACRED FARMS. Some of the processes were Respiration, Elimination, Assimilation, Reproduction. Because those were the only things important to me then (as now) I immediately forgot the rest. Has anyone heard of this before? p.s. Where does that put a virus? What is NASA using as its basis for life and who told them they could dress themselves?
