Major NASA Announcement: Aliens May Exist in our Solar System

This is according to new research NASA, writes the Independent.

Molecular hydrogen, which is found on Enceladus is one of the most important parts of life on Earth.

Scientists suggest that living beings can exist under ice shell on the satellite.

Scientists have long considered Enceladus as one of the main candidates for life in our solar system or elsewhere nearby.

The fact that this satellite is a planetary body from the ocean, which covers the entire surface.

This new study also shows that Enceladus is the source of chemical energy that can sustain life.

The new data come from the Cassini spacecraft, which flew through a huge plume of water that is erupted above the surface of the satellite.

Scientists have shown that these jets of vapor and particles consist from molecular hydrogen, which comes from Enceladus itself.

Perhaps this molecular hydrogen (H2) is derived from hydrothermal reactions between hot stones and water under the icy crust of the satellite, scientists say.

The same process on Earth provides all the energy for ecosystem of life.

Some of the oldest life forms even use this hydrogen as fuel.

So we can assume that life forms may exist on the satellite as well.

Cassini also showed Enceladus has a large amount of carbon dioxide.

In combination, these two components are critical for methanogenesis – a reaction which supports the microbes under conditions similar to dark underwater environment of the Earth.

Scientists believe that planets should have three components: water, organic molecules and energy. The first two components found on Enceladus before. This new discovery indicates that the satellite has all three components.
