CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – One scientist says NASA is closer than ever to identifying a celestial body that might be hospitable to life
Images of Saturn’s moon Enceladus were taken by Nasa’s Cassini spacecraft. They indicate hydrogen is pouring into an underground ocean, which can start a chemical reaction key to life on earth.
Meanwhile, the Hubble Space Telescope saw possible plumes of warm water heating the surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa.
Both findings were published in scientific papers and journals on Thursday.
The discoveries may increase scientific interest in the celestial bodies in our solar system that contain water.
