Life on other planets

According to what I understand from ISKCON lectures available on the internet, there is life on other planets like Sun and Moon though we cannot percieve them with our material senses. What I want to ask is that even in this age when we have organisations like NASA to help in space exploration, why is there not a single planet we could find which has life that could be percieved by our material senses?

    Because our each of our material senses even when functioning perfectly are extremely limited in their capacity. For example

    1. Our eyes can ony sense light within a very narrow range of the wavelengths (380-800 nm) of the electromagnetic specrum, which ranges between (1 picometer or  1×10−12 m to 100 Megameter or  1×108 m ). 

    2. Our ears can only hear frequency within a range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. 

    3. Our nose cannot even smell beyond a few meters 

    In fact animals/birds/acquatics perform better in material sense perception than humans. Discovering life on another planet is not easy. But then it not required also.
