First time they really seen oxygen in the atmosphere of another world.
Everything needed to hold life is out in the universe. And one day, if not soon, we'll find that other planet with that life.
The possibilities are endless of what whats to be discovered.

Great discovery !
Did anyone read the oxygen makes up about 70 % with 30% carbon ?
That the atmosphere is so thin The entire moons atmosphere can fit in a building ? And that it's only 170 degrees Celsius below zero ?

Don't think it would be a a great idea to travel there even if it is breathable.
Doesn't Jupiter emit a massive amount of radiation? Surely that in itself would hamper the possibility of life.

Great find, this made my day!
We could fire some sort of compact solidified gas rounds at that moon to change its atmosphere, something to dilute the methane. If methane is there it means at one put there was vegetation there, all that methane could be liquefied grass/trees/plants that turned into a gas form.
I'm not a scientist, but this sounds amazing. It would need to be terraformed but at least its something to play with, for the scientists that is.

Just the typical Nasa being attention whore. "We found another Earth..!! -click for news- Oops sorry it's just a ball with climate like Hell." You know they need the funding, so they need to show people are interested. It would suck to live in the ring of Saturn anyway with the constant bombing.edit on 27-11-2010 by Jonas86 because: (no reason given)
