For dozens of years now mankind has been convinced that it might be able to prove the existence of life on Mars. As it turns out, it might have been looking in the wrong direction. New photos of Titan (one of Saturn’s moons) reveal that there is a good chance that life has been forming there. At this point the evidence seems to only point to very low levels of life, probably single cells at best, but even if it doesn’t have aliens, it still seems interesting enough to continue investigating. The reason for all of this speculation is massive lakes of methane that have pooled throughout the moon and interesting weather patterns. Due to the location and activity of this liquidized gas, scientists believe it might be a good sign of life.
People have often thought that one of Jupiter’s moons might have good conditions for the formation of life, and theories are always bouncing around about Mars. It seems interesting that the more we look at the solar system around us, the more that it looks like all kinds of conditions are favorable for the formation of life. Who knows — maybe in 100 years we will be able to find out we are not as unique as we once thought. Also, it would be pretty sweet to watch a methane rainstorm. Although it would probably smell.
