NASA Observes Primitive Life On Second Largest Planet Of The Solar System

2589 NASA has recently figured out some vital clues which in their opinion accounts for the existence of primitive life on Titan; one of the primary moons of Saturn.

Reportedly, Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system and has always been the object of attraction for NASA. Saturn’s moon Titan is said to be the largest moon of the solar system.

Apart from Earth, Titan is the only other heavenly body where myriad patterns of liquid bodies and their existence has been found.

It is Titan which contains methane in abundance so as to form an entire lake out of the compound and stretches for a total distance of more than 100 kilometers.

Although it appears that Saturn is a place where there could have been no possibility of life, the researchers have enough proof to support their argument in calling Saturn the source of primitive life.

NASA’s research studies are based upon the data which was collected by Cassini spacecraft. Cassini had been orbiting the surface of Saturn for a long span of 12 years after it was launched way back in the year of 1997. It was also told by NASA that Titan when compared to Earth could have been a hell for humans to survive.

They also said that in the near future when Earth is supposed to face it’s doom and gets engulfed by the Sun, Titan might serve as the alternate habitat for one and all.

It’s only a matter of time when human beings shall get to witness how Saturn might become the second Earth for all human existence.
