article imageNASA scientists find early stages of alien life on Saturn's moon

By Andrew Moran     Jun 6, 2010 in Science
Houston - Scientists at the United States space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have stumbled upon early stages of life on the Saturn moon Titan, which is one of the planet's biggest moons.
A 2005 poll by the Center for Survey and Research Analysis at the University of Connecticut found that a majority of Americans believe there is alien life in our universe. Scientists hypothesize that there could even be numerous amounts of multiverses. So how can alien life not exist?
Scientists at NASA may have found alien life on the Saturn moon Titan, according to News Australia. Although the extraterrestrial life may not be four-foot green men, NASA employees believe the moon maybe inhabited by tiny bugs.
Researchers argue, reports USA Today, that the hydrogen is being absorbed before hitting Titan’s surface with methane lakes and rivers. Scientists also say the Sun’s heating up over the course of billions of years may actually put life on the cold moon.
“If these signs do turn out to be a sign of life, it would be doubly exciting because it would represent a second form of life independent from water-based life on Earth,” said astrobiologist Chris McKay.
The research is based on data sent from NASA’s Cassini probe and it has been outlined into two different studies, reports the Hindustan Times.
One paper detailed that hydrogen gas was flowing throughout the atmosphere and disappeared at the surface. The second paper showed that the lack of chemicals on the surface could have only been consumed by alien life.
It’s believed that in the next four billion years, when the Sun turns into a red giant, “it could be paradise on Titan.”
