NewsFix in Space: NASA announces possible life on another planet

NewsFix in Space: NASA announces possible life on another planet The vapor or gas contains hydrogen, one of the essential components of life. NASA's space Hubble telescope has observed "probable" plumes erupting from Jupiter's moon Europa. NASA's Galileo spacecraft orbited Jupiter for many years (1995-2003), but Europa was not a main target of its investigations and only about a dozen flybys of the moon were made. [Full Article...]

Saturn's moon highly likely to support life

Hunter Waite, lead author of a paper published Thursday in the journal Science , said the calories represented by the hydrogen seen in the plume is roughly equivalent to 300 pizzas per hour. It could, very well, also have the same life-sustaining elements as Enceladus. If that is the case, then it is also reasonable to think that microbe life - if it exists - could be flourishing due to a process... [Full Article...]
