- I think that the future missions of NASA in our solar system should be directed to one of Saturn’s moon’s, Europa.
- “Scientists suspect that warm, liquid water lives under Europa’s thick ice shell. Given that, this moon is considered a “top candidate” by NASA for life on another world in our solar system. “(Newsela)
- “The finding (in Europa) is raising hopes for signs of life outside Earth.” (Newsela)
- “Europa is much older and any potential life there has had more time to emerge.” (Newsela)
- “Voytek said her money is still on Europa for potential life, versus Enceladus(one of Saturn’s other moons) since Europa is much older and any potential life there has had more time to emerge.” (Newsela)
- It is pretty that we should direct our future missions of our solar system towards the exploration of extra-terrestrial life, even if might just be bacteria, it means that life can sustain. It would be of great benefit if we have contact with alien species not only to learn from them, but to learn them. Physics and Chemistry are the same on every planet, but biology is different in every environment. According to the evidence listed above, Europa, is considered the top candidate of a chance for alien life in our solar system and it would be quite useless spending time and money to look at the planet and not go even take so samples. Plus, Europa had existed long before Enceladus (as said in the evidence), so if there really is life on both moons, Europa’s life form should be more evolved than Enceladus’s. So, I think that it is the most reasonable to direct NASA’s main focus on a Mission in hopes of finding life on Europa
