Is the darwinian theory of evolution universal? As in would it be applicable to life, say outside of earth?

first u need to prove that life exists beyond earth.......if yes.......there is very less posibility for survival for darwins theory.......

life on earth is possible because of many concomitant features our planets has (distance from the sun, that allows for optimal temperatures; size of the planet, allowing gravity to be not too strong and not too light; the presence of abundant water and a gaseous atmosphere containing high levels of oxygen… and many many others). assuming any other planet in the universe shares these features, then evolution can occur as darwin described it. so yes, darwinian theory is in fact universal, and it can be applied to life on any earth-like extrasolar planet.

but...every planet brings new dimensions to it...the properties differ....and execution of life can be different on that planet by nature....if we have no idea about their life...we cannot apply darwins theory...so...this fact is not universal

This is an interesting question. Hypothetically life on another planet would evolve given the usual drivers: DNA mutation, competition for habitat / food sources. The interesting thing would be to see if things happened slower or faster in a background of higher radiation than here on earth. I suppose writers of science fiction have considered this and the scariest alien life forms ususally come from tough places to live, unless they have been engineered but that's another question.
