Yesterday, NASA shared news about two icy moons, one around Saturn, the other at Jupiter:
Two veteran NASA missions are providing new details about icy, ocean-bearing moons of Jupiter and Saturn, further heightening the scientific interest of these and other “ocean worlds” in our solar system and beyond. The findings are presented in papers published Thursday by researchers with NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn and Hubble Space Telescope.
This news — broken down on the agency’s Tumblr — is really exciting. It’s long been imagined that these under-ice oceans could hold the ingredients for life. That’s still unknown, but evidence is mounting that we may not be alone in the Solar System.
