Enceladus: Scientists are looking for life on planets like Mars, Saturn and Venus. In the latest study, information has been received about the possibilities of life on the moon of Saturn. Due to which scientists are seeing new hope.

Life on Saturn’s Moon: At this time, along with Mars, the search for life on other planets has also intensified. Now a new study has brought good news related to the planet Saturn. Methane gas is coming out of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Which is seen as a sign of life. The new study was published last month in the journal Nature Astronomy. In which it is not clearly said whether there is life here or not. But the possibility of life on the subsurface sea of Saturn’s moon is definitely being expressed.
Study co-author Rigis Firari said, ‘We want to know whether microorganisms like Earth, which release methane by eating dehydrogen, would be able to explain the large amount of methane discovered by Cassini?’ This is the reason why Fieri and his co-workers have created a mathematical model (Life on Saturn’s Moon Enceladus). which assessed the possibility that Enceladus’s methane was biologically generated.
water particles discovered
“Now not only can we evaluate whether the environment there is conducive to life, but we can also observe other cases, such as whether methanogenesis should actually take place on the ocean floor of Enceladus,” he said. Earlier in 2005, NASA’s Cassini Saturn orbiter discovered water particles in space from the “Tiger Stripe” fracture near the south pole of Enceladus (Could Life Survive on Saturn).
presence of fluid
The Cassini spacecraft had informed about the release of steam only on Saturn’s small moon Enceladus. Which increased the possibility that a liquid like water could be present on it (Can Life Exist on Saturn). Later, the spacecraft also found evidence of carbon dioxide, ammonia, methane and other complex hydrocarbons. Recently, there was also news about solving the mystery of methane gas found on Mars.
Methane also found on Mars
Scientists say that the methane gas discovered by NASA’s Curiosity rover is very close to solving its mystery. On the other hand, if we talk about methane gas, then the micro-organisms living on the earth also release this gas (Life on Mars). Which helps the living beings to digest their food. This process ends when the animal releases gas into the air while exhaling or burping. But sometimes methane is also generated due to inorganic process.
