Is There Proof of Alien Life on Jupiter's Moons?

One News Page Staff Saturday, 28 July 2018
Is There Proof of Alien Life on Jupiter's Moons?by 👨‍💻 Adam Yardley

We are living in what appears to be a very exciting time indeed – there seems to be more and more evidence – or at least the potential for evidence – that alien life may well exist beyond our Earthly realm. From rumors circulating that there were once alien creatures on Mars to ongoing speculation as to whether or not planets far from our reach could feasibly sustain life, it’s never been a better time to be Agent Mulder – the truth, as they say, is out there. News surfacing this week suggests that alien life forms could in fact be hiding beneath certain surfaces – evidence of such, anyway – and we have to look over to a certain gas giant if we have any hope of uncovering it.

Jupiter is well-known for its colossal range of moons and, as the largest celestial body beyond the Sun in our solar system, it’s no lightweight. The massive gas orb has always been a figure of mystery for astronomers and scientists, particularly as landing there is nigh on impossible – without there being a very painful death involved, anyway. In any case, it’s Europa, one of Jupiter’s moons, which has come into focus this week – as recent research suggests that proof of the existence of alien life forms could be lurking beneath the cold planet’s cover of ice. Subterranean fossils could be within reach – and if such suppositions are to be believed, it will mean a less extensive drilling job for NASA moving forwards.

NASA are confident that alien life will be discovered in one form or another in the next two decades, and they are already planning fly-by and lander missions to Europa in the next few years alone. Dr Tom Nordheim – speaking with regard to the recent findings as an expert on such matters – suggests that finding evidence of alien life on Europa may not be particularly difficult. “These results indicate future missions to Europa’s surface do not need to excavate material to great depths to investigate the composition of material and search for potential biosignatures,” he suggested. Therefore – we could well be seeing speedier results than anyone may have anticipated.

Will we find alien life in our lifetime – or at least that there may be something out there that has existed at one point or another? The search continues – and so does the hard work and research!
