Chemistry is a funny thing, and so is the search for extraterrestrial life. They are, in fact, two great things that go great together. The likeliest scenario for the detection of life on other worlds is the detection of chemical biosignatures the presence of chemicals, or fluctuations in levels of chemicals, or both, which have no explanation other than the metabolic processes of alien life. The problem is that various chemicals can be produced by a range of processes, some of which are metabol…

Scientists used data gathered by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during 13 years of exploring the Saturn system to make detailed images of the icy moonand to reveal geologic activity.
New composite images made from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft are the most detailed global infrared views ever produced of Saturn’s moon Enceladus. And data used to build those images provides strong evidence that the northern hemisphere of the moon has been resurfaced with ice from its interior.
Cassini’s Visible and Infra…
