Extraterrestrial life may be lurking in our solar system, and a NASA scientist has revealed some of the most likely places it can be found.
dr Michelle Thaller, a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, recently spoke about the guest spotting extraterrestrial life in New York City.
Speaking at the Artechouse exhibition Beyond the Light, Dr. Thaller of a small group of visitors: “In the case of the solar system, there are certain places where there is strong evidence that life could exist there.”
The expert said Venus, Mars and Saturn’s icy moon Titan are all places where life could be spotted.
She added: “I think it’s only a matter of time before we have evidence that it’s in the solar system, but that’s the thing, we’re waiting for there’s nothing else that it could be because.” can you imagine the difficulties?” would we come in?”
The way of life that Dr. Thaller is referring to are small microbial organisms.
It’s believed that some microbes could exist in the harsh conditions of other planets, and we don’t yet understand how they survive.
dr Thaller thinks Venus may be one of the best places to search.
Previous research suggests that microbial life forms may exist in the planet’s upper atmosphere.
The expert exclusively told The US Sun: “I never expected Venus. On Venus we are now seeing something in the atmosphere that looks very much like it was produced by bacteria.”
Experts are looking for signs of existing life as well as evidence of ancient life on the red planet.
dr Thaller told The US Sun, “On Mars we see chemistry that on Earth, if it were here, we think would be due to life.”
“But the question is, how well do we understand Mars and are we being fooled?”
NASA has a section on their website that explains the potential for life on Titan.
The icy moon is said to have a subterranean ocean of liquid water.
Nasa said, “Titan could potentially host environments with suitable conditions for life – both life and us.” knowledge it (in the subterranean ocean) and life like us I don’t know it es (in the hydrocarbon liquid at the surface).
“Although there is no evidence of life on Titan as yet, its complex chemistry and unique environments will certainly make it a target for further exploration.”
