Saturnís Moon Enceladus Holds Promise of Alien Life


The cause of this unexpected interest in Enceladus Ė first observed by William Herschel in 1789 and named after one of the children of the Earth goddess Gaia Ė stems from a discovery made by the robot spacecraft Cassini, which has been in orbit of Saturn for the past eight years. The $3bn probe has shown that the little moon not only has an atmosphere, but that geysers of water are erupting from its surface into space. Even more astonishing has been its most recent discovery, which has shown that these geysers contain complex organic compounds, including propane, ethane, and acetylene.

The truth is out there...
