Check out this sweet comic strip.
How did life first start? Scientists hoping to answer that question are recreating the conditions of early Earth’s oceans in a lab.
It looks like NASA will offer the billionaire entrepreneur and physicist its help on the first-ever private deep-space mission.
Sound and light have way more in common than you think.
It’s yet another sign that this intriguing Saturnian moon has what it takes to sustain life.
This icy moon, perhaps more than any other place in our Solar System aside from Earth, has the potential to sustain life at this particular stage in our Solar System’s history.
Astronomers have spotted the organic molecule methanol surrounding the icy moon.
Maybe, just maybe, we’ll get to find some space narwhals lurking below its surface.
The question is, what could live on a rocky ice ball with an enormous ocean lurking under its crust?
Enceladus is now officially the best place beyond Earth to look for life.
Though it looks like a lonely ice ball, this moon is concealing what’s probably an underground ocean, engulfing a rocky core.
One amateur astronomer thinks he’s spotted geysers erupting from the south pole of Saturn’s moon Enceladus....in images taken by the Voyager 1 probe in 1980.
Maybe we will find aliens. Or just more ice.
But this time around, nobody’s talking about studying the gas giant itself. They’re talking about hunting for life in Saturn’s rings.
The evidence is mounting that our solar system is rife with oceans.
The discovery strengthens the case for a geothermally-heated, subsurface ocean.
