There are a few more methods for detecting extrasolar planets, see here but that is one of the primary ways for sure. On the other hand we have spotted one planet directly:

Well,

It's hard for people to think life can exsist without water because everything we know needs water to live. It's just the nature of the human mind, we look for patterns.

Water has several special chemical properties that is used frequently in the
complexities in life. There is no proof as of yet that any element can
replace H-OH. It might be possible life dosen't need water to survive, but
the chances are so slim, that it isn't even accepted in the scientific community.

I always thought the idea was that Mars used to be a mini earth long ago, I am talking pre prehistoric Earth.

I also enjoy stories about the Mars-humanoids created the 13 crystal skulls and thus handed the technology to Atlantis which was this technological hub that became too powerful it sank.

But back to reality...ice on Mars could also be technically gas in an "ice form"?

But there isn't any proof that there is life that doesn't require it either, Scientists don't know everything about the universe, no-one does, and no-one will, ever, there's just way too much for anyone to know all that stuff.

Although I do agree its best to base experiments on what we do currently know, and what we do know about life right now, is that most of it requires water.

We are only just now starting to pick up non-gas-giant planets. Previously, we could only find the super massive planets, but as atrophysicists get better tech and more precision, they are starting to picking up planets that are a mere 10x earth mass.
