NASA Just Confirmed: All Life Elements Found on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus
NASA has made a stunning discovery on the icy moon of Saturn, Enceladus. From the Cassini data, they have discovered that the moon is spewing out phosphorus, one of the key chemical elements required for the existence of life.
And possibly, the phosphorus concentration in the subsurface oceans of Enceladus is hundreds of times higher than in Earth’s oceans. With this, all the major chemical elements required for claiming habitability have now been found on the moon. This discovery has made Enceladus the most promising place where life could exist in the solar system beyond Earth.
So, how did NASA make this exciting discovery? Why is phosphorus considered to be a key ingredient of life? Finally, and most importantly, how will this discovery impact our course of future missions to Saturn?
