Claim: In the future, NASA should focus more on exploring in Saturn’s rings, on a moon called Enceladus.
Evidence: In the Newsela article about searching for life beyond Earth, they found out that in Saturn’s rings, they found a moon that may contain life. NASA found hydrogen molecules in the geysers of Enceladus. The chemical reaction and tart life for microbes. “We now know that Enceladus has almost all of the ingredients that you would need to support life as we know it on Earth,” Linda Spiker said. Scientists found a lot of hydrogen which living organisms need so there may be life or contain life there. Hydrogen and carbon dioxide under means that undersea microbes are producing methane gas. This is what microbes do deep below Earth’s oceans.
Reasoning: NASA should focus more on exploring Enceladus because if one day Earth can’t sustain life, we will have another place where we can go, since scientist have found things that contribute to sustaining life. Enceladus has many natural fountains. Water is an important thing we need in order to survive. This can not only help us in the future, but this discovery can also help us advance our knowledge about outer space and our solar system. This can also show that there is life outside of earth. “We still have a long way to go in our understanding,” said Seewald, who was not involved in the study. “Future missions to explore oceans beyond Earth will answer many of these questions.”
