Alien Life On Saturn To Be Explored By Scientists

There are arguable signs of possible existence of alien life on Saturn's moons as claimed by scientists. While the ringed planet's composition may not be able to support life, its two natural satellites, however, might be habitable as speculated by experts.

As discovered to have two moons, NASA has named the natural satellites of Saturn as Titan and Enceladus. The former is the planet's largest and as explorations revealed, Titan is abundant of flowing rivers and seas of frigid methane. Enceladus on the other hand is composed of ice which is wrapped by an ocean of liquid water. These are taken by American and European experts as good signs that the moons are indeed capable of supporting human life and they are reportedly more eager to find out if these satellites do.

NASA has long ago launched its Cassini spacecraft to observe the moons of Saturn and reports reveal that life on Titan is much likely. The hydrocarbons that make up the rivers of the said moon are speculated by scientists to be alternatives to water which can make an alien life on Saturn possible, Daily Caller notes.

It is still unclear though how the canyons of bodies of waters on Titan were formed. There were anomalies though detected through the Cassini mission where experts say methane-producing organisms built the canyons over time. Species then can be possible as theorized by scientists but they might be far different from any living species on Earth.

Meanwhile, the United States previously engaged its Enceladus Life Finder (ELF) whose mission is to detect life on Saturn's second moon, Gizmodo reveals. As it was discovered to house a vast salty ocean above an icy crust, the water vapors and ice particles from Enceladus' jets are suspected by scientists to support life like Titan. The conference, "Enceladus and the Icy Moons of Saturn" gathered experts from across the globe to gather reports regarding Enceladus.

The Cassini has set flybys on Enceladus first in 2004 and its last being in 2015. The latest mission is expected to end in 2017 and experts are hoping to find out more about the Enceladus and to come up with a more concrete conclusion on their search of alien life on Saturn.
