There might be extraterrestrial life on Europa (one of Jupiter's moons).

lmao! Was that a joke?

If it wasn't

Microscopic organisms do not build microscopic cities. I believe they're only at mud dwellings right now.

But I heard recently that the recently formed
"Itty-bitty City Commitee" Has passed a Europan ordinance, allowing
for the study and creation of the first Brick.

First issue on the agenda. Finding clay that will dry underater..

This was an episode of Horizon that mentioned this a while ago.

The possibilty of life non solar dependant is real. Life was found in a sealed cave under a romanian rubbish dump. Many different insects were found, and lived off a scum found on the water of a hot spring in the cave.

I think i saw this, did all the insects lack eyes?

So what if they find bacteria in there? Can someone please explain me what's so exciting about some crappy bacteria at the bottom of a frozen lake? :|

It would prove that life arose at least twice,
and that Earth is not the only place accommodatiing to life.

What kind of bacteria would they be? Maybe similar to Earth bacteria, maybe not.

If they live in a super harsh environment, maybe they've developed survival techniques, usually chemical response in simple life.

Exotic chemicals, cures for diseases, or for energy, or vaccines.
Or maybe just a simple cement that changes the way we build things. Who knows?

or maybe they just produce noxious gas, and smell like crap..

It's worth finding out, in my opinion, just to know.

First off it would prrove that there is life on other planets. Second there might be many advanteges to fidning it. Cures....

Here is an article regarding the organisms living near
the "smoker" vents under the Pacific Ocean.
A THIRD MAJOR BRANCH of life on Earth.

Collectively known as Archea, meaning ancient.

Something like this could live in Europa's Ocean.

So what are they saying a pice of ice flew all the way here into our ocean? I doubt it.

posted on Jun, 14 2004 @ 08:50 PM

No, not at all.
I think any ice, knocked off Europa, would get sucked-in by
big fat Jupiter. To be never heard from again.

I was just illustrating, the type of life that might be found there,
if there are volcanic vents in it's ocean..

That's exactly what i thought. But how do scientists explain this? I explain it by saying it's not from Europa.

posted on Jun, 14 2004 @ 11:11 PM
I think it formed here, the same as every other life form.

The method of it's coming into existence, would probably be a good
thread on it's own.
