Ocean world near Saturn top contender for life beyond Earth

The findings were reported Thursday in the journal Science by a team from Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. Could there be life under the icy surface of Saturn's moon Enceladus? Two moons - one of Saturn, the other of Jupiter - show evidence of the ingredients needed to support life, NASA said on Thursday.

Life beyond earth? Try Saturn's moon Enceladus

Another plume was also found on Europa, one of Jupiter's moons that's covered in ice and has twice as much ocean as Earth underneath that surface. NASA's Cassini spacecraft is to thank for the revelation. "We have detected hydrogen in the plume on Enceladus". In order to determine whether the molecular hydrogen is being created by microbial life, further missions need to fly through the plumes, Waite said.

Will The Upcoming iOS Update Render iPhone 5, 5C Obsolete?

There have been several reports about the iPhone 8 launching later than September, so this is not completely unsubstantiated. Time may still be running out for those models, however, as iOS 11 may not include support for 32-bit devices. However, the new Touch ID is the feature causing the most trouble, analyst Timothy Arcuri of Cowen and Company said in a note.

N. Korean official: US more vicious, aggressive under Trump

Kyodo news agency said separately Japan had begun working on plans to respond to a potential crisis on the Korean peninsula in February, after Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met Trump for a summit in the United States.

Ingredients for life exist on Saturn's moon Enceladus

Both plumes, photographed in UV light by Hubble, were seen in silhouette as the moon passed in front of Jupiter. Ice plumes shooting into space from the ocean-bearing moon contain hydrogen from hydrothermal vents, an environment that some scientists believe led to the rise of life on Earth.

Samsung to start testing Galaxy X prototype with dual screen

It joins Apple's Siri, Amazon's Alexa, Google's Google Assistant and Microsoft's Cortana. It seems Samsung will make the Bixby Voice available through a software update . Instead of answering the questions, Bixby will help you to control your device through voice command. The Galaxy S8 boasting of a virtual assistant that can't be usable through voice is indeed surprising.

Samsung's Bixby won't say hello to you until later this spring

While several features will work on worldwide versions, those that rely on voice activation and control won't operate, because Samsung apparently hasn't perfected Bixby's understanding of English yet. Speaking to Silicon , a Samsung spokesperson said: "All Bixby functionality, bar the Voice Function, will be available to United Kingdom customers at launch".

Ocean world near Saturn hotter-than-ever contender for life

Researchers speculate that, like Enceladus, this could be evidence of water erupting from the moon's interior. It's these eruptions that indicate there's likely hot spots found within the icy waters that are probably caused by heated rocks which interact with the colder elements in this fashion.

NASA announcement confirms ocean under Enceladus could harbour life

In these areas, the frigid ocean water mingles with Earth's piping hot magma, creating chemical reactions that produce different types of minerals and materials - including, yes, hydrogen gas - that rise up from the vents. In a subsequent trip through the plume, Cassini's INMS was put into a mode that minimized analytical artifacts that had compromised the measurements of the energy source molecular hydrogen, or H2, during previous flybys.

Science

Saturn Moon Has Necessary Conditions to Harbor Life

In 2015, Cassini revealed that Enceladus had a global subsurface ocean, and that water was spewing out of cracks in its icy crust. The necessary ingredients for life as we know it include liquid water, energy sources and chemicals such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus.

NASA Finds More Signs Saturn's Icy Moon Can Support Life

Prof Hunter Waite , an investigator for Cassini's mass spectrometer, which detected the hydrogen, said: "The plume contains chemical signatures of water-rock interaction between the ocean and a rocky core". An illustration provided by Nasa on Thursday shows what scientists on the space agency's Cassini mission theorize how water interacts with rock at the bottom of the ocean of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus, producing hydrogen gas (H2).
