Yet some scientist agree that the possibility of life does not seem to far fetched afterall.And i agree after having researched astronomy for a decade now.We all probably know why this possibilty arises.
All the giants,especially Jupiter and Neptune hold extremely hot cores.The one on jupiter is 5000 degress (9000F)alone.Thats just as much as the suns surface.But where does life come in.As you all probably know,all the gas giants hold a liquid surface below the deep gas atmosphere.What if these cores possibly heated these vast liquid oceans and this making a temperate part of this ocean 1000`s/10,000`s of miles away from the core.From here aquatic life,most likely small,could of evolved and adapted to the gas planets harsh weather and atmospheric systems.And maby they may have evolved a way of breathing something besides oxygen.
I know this may seem out of order,but it seems logical to me.But i would like to see what most of you think of this.Do you believe there is a possibility?
