Yep, if we can get a image in 2020 from one of these probes of some ocean life... that isn't microbial... now THAT will change everything smile.gif

Other forums like hardforum are way more fun to discuss with other like minded people. Overclock.net I only come to check the news.

There could be "intelligent" life there with no idea (yet) that anything exists above its icy crust. They could be aware of the barrier, but having to drill or get up through tens of miles of ice into a vacuum would be no easy feat, considering the environmental conditions they'd be acclimated to. Not probable, but certainly not impossible.

Because it would be one of most profound scientific confirmations in history.


Just figured it was going to come up might as well beat that person to the punch.

Microbes again? Much ado about microbes...

NASA just put one of these articles out a month prior. I suppose the question I want to ask is: is there any new evidence besides microbes/bacteria over and over and over and over ad nauseum infinitum?

Let's put the brakes on the logic train here a moment....

Life thrives in the condition you are describing and being discussed on this thread. The conditions you are describing are why we went to Enceladus, due to (presumed) it having these conditions for simple life to develop. In the deepest, darkest, coldest, most hostile to life places on this planet we found thriving life because of the thermal and chemical activity. As far as we know, life just needs water and an energy source to form and survive. Even some forms of microbial life survive when exposed to the vacuum of space itself.

I highly encourage you to look into that and more if you are really interested in what is happening now. The definition of "life" is incredibly broad, from single celled organisms to more complex of course.

Organic molecules imply that life could be present. The article certainly does not claim organic molecules are life. Next time read before commenting please.
