Seeds of Life Found Near Saturn


www.livescience.com

A sniff test of water vapor spewing from Saturn's moon Enceladus shows it is gushing with organic molecules, increasing the possibility of life existing somewhere in the Saturn system.

Scientists have been intrigued by the moon since the fountain of water was first spotted in 2005. Now they've identified a soup of prebiotic material there, similar to what's found in comets, from an analysis of data collected by the Cassini spacecraft.

Nobody really knows how life began, but astrobiologists guess it required chemicals like those tasted by Cassini, a little liquid water and some unknown spark

Water on Saturns moon, possible life supporting conditions? It is still not confirmed that there is liquid water - so far just ice, I provided a link to another article on the water. It will be interesting to see what comes of this alleged soup of prebiotic material there. I suppose they mean to hint at Darwins primordial soup? I wonder if crackers come with that?

Hold on, organic such as carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, phosphrous, and sulfer?

Amazing
. But they could be lying.

Wow, that's pretty definitive!

I say we drop what we know about life and just start fresh saying
"Who knows what's out there, but we know something is out there!"

That way everyone wins
