It's possible that there is life on Mars and the moons of Jupiter. But life didn't originate there, it came from Earth.

The Chicxulub asteroid that murdered the dinosaurs and ended the Cretaceous was so powerful, it send huge chunks of Earth debris hurdling into space. This debris eventually collided with other planets or satellites within our Solar System.

Ants developed fungus farming after the Chicxulub asteroid extinction event likely due to shortage of other foods. While some ants will just farm wild fungus, more modern species of farming ants have fully domesticated their fungus and the two could not survive without each other.

The "jelly bean rule" was a regulation adopted by the FDA in 1994. It was meant to curb advertising trends that started in the 1980s where food companies would claim candy and/or junk food was healthy by zeroing in on the absence of fat, sodium and cholesterol, or adding vitamins/minerals and claiming the candy had nutritional value.

Luke Skywalker's homeworld of Tatooine was famously un-inhabitable, to the point that one of its major industries was farming moisture out of the atmosphere.

Scientists discovered a real planet orbiting two suns and drew an interesting observation - when the gravity of two stars influence a planet's orbit, they tend to put that planet directly in the habitable zone, or a distance from the star(s) where water becomes a liquid.

So a planet like Tatooine, in a binary star system where it's so hot water only exists as a vapour, isn't realistic.

Just another case of George Lucas getting science wrong!
