The Saturn system teems with natural satellites, from planet-sized Titan to small oddballs, shaped like potatoes or ravioli.
NASA has made a truly astonishing finding on Saturn’s frosty moon, Enceladus.
The discovery revolves around the revelation that this celestial body is emitting phosphorus, a fundamental building block for life. What’s even more astonishing is that the concentration of phosphorus in Enceladus’s subsurface oceans might be hundreds of times greater than that found in Earth’s oceans.
This means that all the essential chemical components needed for life to thrive have now been identified on this distant moon. But how exactly did NASA make this exhilarating discovery? And why is phosphorus hailed as a vital ingredient for life? Join us as we explore what NASA just confirmed about all life elements found in Saturn’s moon.
