Could happen. I was under the impression that if there was going to be any kind of life in the solar system that wasn't here, then it would probably be on Titan. Like, this isn't a new development really. I think.

So their logic is that if there's little vital nutrients then there must be life.

Honestly?

I heard a seminar by Brian Cox about possible life on two other moons of either Saturn or Jupiter. The names were weird, but I think one was Europa (may be spelled differently). Never heard of this Titan stuff though. Sounds cool.

^ No, ****tard. Their logic is the lack of vital nutrients may possibly suggest there could be life.

Off the top of my head, Europa is made up of ice (which is, if you haven't noticed, frozen H20, H2O being water, which is the building block of all known life). some scientists theorize that there could be a large ocean under that ice.

But I'd prefer them to stop theorizing and to start finding ways of getting to these places faster, and with manned probes.

Edit: And that's what I meant, retard. That's like saying "Look, there is a miniscule amount of oxegen on that planet, therefore there must be life!"

Unless they can prove it's a shortfall of the stuff.

I've talk about this all day at work. I'm an astronomer in an observatory and even if chemistry is not my main thing, I can understand.

The disturbing thing is the lack of hydrogen and acetylene.

This is pretty big, there should be a lot more hydrogen on this moon. So there is something that is capturing (or eating) the hydrogen.

life is "possible" anywhere. This isn't news to anyone.

Maybe, but there are ideal scenarios which make the existence of life more probable, and Titan is incredibly ideal compared to the rest of the solar system, excluding Earth.

Kind of hard when there budgets keep getting cut. I too would like to see some actual exploration.

Yeah, I knew one of them had all the ice on it, and one had gysers of hydrogen I think, or something like that. I just couldn't remember which was which. Gotta watch a video of the talk again.

EDIT: And no ones saying there must be life, which is what I was pointing out. They just said it was a slight possibility, and no one is claiming it's anything close to a fact like you keep suggesting. "There might be life" is a lot different than "There Has to be Life!"

Here is the problem, the only life we know is from earth, so it's certain that every life known is water-based.

Life started from water on earth because we have water on earth.

There is no scientific evidence that a life based on an other chemistry could not spring from an other planet or moon or whatever.

Sounds like they are very tentative to even consider that it might be some form of life, so I'm not going to get too excited about that finding yet.
#27
That's cool. I've heard and read many times that life is possible on a few moons in our solar system. They're most likely just single-celled organisms that don't need much to live, like archaea here. I can believe it.

My view on extra terrestrials is that they definitely do exist, but on a planet so far away that there is no way that we could ever make contact with them. I'm not really going to get my hopes up about this.

Single-celled organisms would still constitute one of the most, if not the most, important discoveries in human history.

It's quite plausible that hundreds of millions of years ago, Mars was just like Earth (but due to a whole bunch of reasons, it is the way it is now) and life on Earth originated from Mars.

Awesome books, too.

Except the last one, 3001: The Final Odyssey. That one was balls.

EDIT: And the third one dragged a bit, too.

So mainly 2001 and 2010 are awesome books.

i was under the impression that life on earth was Carbon based, they simply use water for carrying out basic functions.

and yes, there's plenty of information on alternative bases for life and why it could or could not happen.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothetical_types_of_biochemistry

Carbon based life with water is the most probable to occur which is why we look for it more often than anything else.

That's one of the reasons why some NASA scientists are cautioning that the existence of alien life on Titan is just one explanation for the moon's curious lack of hydrogen and acetylene, and is probably the least likely theory to be correct.


...So the whole theory that the article is about is the theory that is considered to be the "least likely to be correct?"

And there is a lack of hydrogen and acetylene... But they consider those to be what the lifeforms use for energy...

This article didn't really make much sense to me.

Exactly. The idea is that there is a lack of hydrogen and acetylene because the organisms residing on Titan have been consuming them. Supposedly.
