    At 8 pm tonight, NASA are set to announce some news about alien life on a Moon orbiting Saturn. Well, that’s what the Telegraph are saying :unsure: ……. so, a little over and hour from now.

    They’ve found hydrogen in erupting plumes, which they are saying would provide energy for the creation of life!

    This discovery being found on both Enceladus orbiting Saturn, and also on Europa orbiting Jupiter.

    Would, could, does, doesn’t, if, but, possibly, maybe, no idea, but anything is possible, maybe not time travel, or possibly warp drive, or a star gate.

    When asked if this could lead to finding alien life in the form of bacteria or perhaps ‘shrimps’ (their words not mine), one of the lead scientists answered “yes, perhaps”

    Boy oh boy, they are really talking up the possibility of life of some sort possibility existing in the oceans underneath the ice surfaces.

    Europa being the best bet for life according to one of the scientists. Primarily because those Moons are far far older than Enceladus evidently.

    And if they find ‘proof’ of life up there around Jupiter, what then? It’s too far away for us to get to to examine it in our lifetimes, and what we are seeing now is already out of date. What exactly, or even inexactly, is it going to change for us here on Earth?

    I should imagine, some similar argument was said to Mr Columbus VK.

    It’s called science and exploration.  Mankind is rather good at it.

    Man goes exploring out of curiosity, but mostly out of the possibility of financial gain. Before long there won’t be any one left on earth to exploit, so its off to the stars to look for easily exploitable aliens.

    I would like to think that mankind’s first consideration when out exploring the universe would be to be as non-intrusive as possible. As regards exploiting rare-off earth metals and or any other such ‘exploitables’, then in the absense of any other competing lifeforms, they would first have to renegotiate the ‘Outer Space Treaty’ of 1967.

    I was listening to an interesting prog on the radio the other week about how little we know or have really explored about what lies beneath the crust of our own planet. They have discovered oceans and there are signs of bacterial life as much as 6 miles down.

    Also it’s being revealed all the time that life can survive in the most hostile of conditions. So bearing all this mind I should imagine there’s life everywhere, perhaps rudimentary but life never the less…

    Newfound alien planet is best place  yet to search for alien life…..

    Headlines yesterday at Space.com

    http://www.space.com/36521-alien-planet-best-bet-search-for-life.html

    Looking forward to the James Webb Telescope launch in October next year. One of whose tasks is to conduct direct imaging of exoplanets.

    This for anyone who has an interest in such :whistle:

    Fancy a job with a salary of between 105 – 158 K euros a year within this sphere?  Designated Planetary Protection Officer, the position is up for grabs. Although, the position has been open to US citizens since July with a closing date in mid August! Ummmm :unsure:

    I’m glad it is so far away. Look at the problems on our own planet with moving plants and animals from where they were in balance to somewhere where natural predators don’t exist. Japanese knot weed, some type of shrimp in England eating the local ones, grey squirrels etc.

    As an aside, for those interested in alt media type conspiracy news etc etc, you might be saddened to hear that Jim Marrs died today.

    An interesting update on this thread is due here I think.

    You may or may not be aware of the discovery of bacteria having been found on the exterior of the international space station back in late November last year. It may of course, turn out, that this is just a case of contamination from an Earth based Bacteria sent into space on one of the items sent into space when they were in the process of building the ISS, or indeed, when they were visiting to drop off supplies.

    But. What if it isn’t?

    This perhaps gives credence to the hypothesis of  Panspermia.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panspermia

    Which, if this is true, then I am very much looking forward to the launch of the James Webb telescope next year.

    Here are a few links to what I have just stated….

    http://bit.ly/2Dafdds

    https://ind.pn/2AdlpPV

    http://bit.ly/2AWjrjR

    http://bit.ly/2mwprL4

     

    A great many scientists, and others out there, seem to think that we are on the cusp of either the great discovery, disclosure or even something else :wacko:   :unsure:   :unsure: , cue Xfiles music here.

    Keep this thread live and going, because it may JUST become the most important thread on this site soon……

    No one seems to have taken my first post seriously.

    Alien life. No.  We are created by God. Read the Bible genesis one.

    The chap who was behind the US governments secret program on UFOs went public recently saying it was beyond reasonable doubt that alien spacecraft beyond our technology exist.

    Yes. It seems that basic life can exist in the most inhospitable conditions and evidence is pointing to it being carried around by comets and so ‘seeding’  where they go

    Must dig out my old Arthur C Clarke novels, a genius of a writer, with so many of his predictions of scientific advances becoming the norm.

    @okehampton
    I am going to refrain from name calling in this matter. Ie, those of the creationist mindset dismissing everyone who doesn’t hold the same views as them as being “evolutionists” and vice versa. Because, if this happens, then both sides end up using prejudicial language.
    There are any number of center type positions on this question
    Creationism
    Intelligent design
    Theistic Evolution
    Atheistic Evolution
    To name but 4 of the main positions.
    In the end, all it comes down to, without immediate evidence to the contrary, is to be respectful of all personally held beliefs.
