Yeah I can't wait for Cassini to reach Saturn.
No these atmospheres are only currently toxic to our form of life. Mars's has mostly CO2 which could be broken down into O2, and Titan is mostly
Nitrogen, so who knows where you'll get the O2 there, but Io is spewing out a sulfer oxide which was what our own atmosphere was sorta like in its
beginnings, and bacteria formed that converted the SO2 I think it was into O2 by product, and used the Sulfer to make its "fuel" for life...these
little critters still exist, as those like toad stool thing in the ocean, I don't recall the name
Anyways...Io's atmosphere will probably never be like Earth's even billions of yeas from now, but it's interesting that there is another satellite
out there that is showing signs of "life-like" paterns.
As for Europa, I was just reading on that, looking for pics from Jupiters clouds, which I can't find, because NASA is apparently so wrapped up in the
science, they never figured to take a few pictures from the galileo probe as it was floating down into jupiter's atmosphere those bastards.
Don't they have any idea of what an incredible pic that would be, if they took a pic from about 30 miles into Jupiter's atmosphere?
Anyways...Europa has everything it needs for life, all they need to do is make sure it indeed has an ocean, for it has everything else, internal heat,
water, not much left to need, except that the water be liquid, which they're still unsure of
Anyways, if any nasa official reads this, please take a damn pic of jupiter from WITHIN the planet, like 10-30-60 miles down, that sorta thing, so we
can see what it is like to be ON jupiter, not just see the stupid planet from 200,000 miles away.
If I wanted to see that I'd just get a damn telescope, you losers.
