Till date, no organization could ever be sure about traces of life in any part of the universe. However, it now seems that the human race is once again triumphant in yet another invincible mission of search of life outside the planet.

NASA has come to the conclusion that there might be presence of life in one of the moons of Saturn. These lives are not one of those complex creatures that are abundant on Earth. They are only evolutionary biological beings and aquatic bacteria. There lives are supported by the presence of water in that particular satellite of Saturn. The team of researchers who have conducted this study, are under the impression that this study will further facilitate the search of extra terrestrial life in the rest of the universe. The team has decided to call for a press conference at the agency’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. at 2:00 p.m EST on Thursday, December 2. It will be aired on NASA TV. This conference aims the discuss their astrobiology findings and share it with the media, as so far they have not revealed much about this interesting discovery.

The press conference will be headed by five people. Felisa Wolfe-Simon, NASA astrobiology research fellow at U.S. Geological Survey, Menlo Park; Steven Benner, researcher at Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution and also one of the “Titan Team” members at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory; Mary Voytek, the director of Astrobiology Program of NASA; James Elser, professor at Arizona State University and Pamela Conrad, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt.
