Future in Space

NASA should focus on studying saturn in their future missions.

A tiny, ice-encrusted ocean world orbiting Saturn’s moon is called Enceladus.

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has found hydrogen molecules in the geysers shooting off Enceladus, scientists announced last week. They think these molecules could be coming from chemical reactions deep in the ocean, and these reactions between water and rock could spark life for microbes-that is, microscopic living creatures.

The moon of Saturn (Enceladus) could possibly sustain life.

A liquid ocean exists beneath the icy surface of Enceladus, clouds of water vapor spray from the cracks on the south pole of the moon.

This is a good sign to explore Saturn when scientists find a lot of hydrogen. If there’s hydrogen existing, there’s water, also carbon dioxide. This means Enceladus already have the basic elements for organisms to survive.

What if… There’s already lives existing in Enceladus? And we don’t even know.

So far Enceladus is the only planet in the solar system, beside Earth, that could possibly support life. With almost all of the ingredients to grow species, humans can learn more, probably bacterias already existed there.

Even there’s still a long way to go, NASA should start studying Saturn, studying Enceladus, that could possibly hold/will hold signs of life, in the future after all.

The Pale Blue Dot/The Hubble Deep Field?

Claim

The Pale Blue Dot had more of an impact on me.

Evidence

  • The language in the video is more inspiring.
  • The tone feels more professional
  • It gives the audience a mood about our truly existence, and why is our home important.
  • The quality of the pictures is more clear.
  • The language sounds more interesting.

Reasoning

After watching The Pale Blue Dot and The Hubble Deep Field, I believe The Pale Blue Dot had more impact on me, and it’s more interesting to watch. Because the language in this video is more inspiring: the talking of speed, the chosen of words, it attracts our attention.

This is a scientific educational video, information needs to be contained within the quality of entertaining. I’m not a science-video person, but I have to say this video caught my attention from the beginning second.

It also mentioned: everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being, is in that dot. How insignificant we are!

The tone of the speaker feels more professional, it gives the audience a mood about our existence, where we are in the universe, why is our only existence (so far we know) important.

The quality of the picture is more clear, the language objective and the choice of pictures are more interesting. Not like “The Hubble Deep Field”, the tone is boring, the pictures are blurry, topic became less attractive to audience, which means, less inspiring.

Here are some high-quality pictures attached from the video~
