Ingredients For Life Exist On Saturn's Moon, Says NASA. Twitter Excited

-We now know Enceladus has nearly all the ingredients needed for life as we know it,- said NASA.


In a tweet posted about 9 hours ago, NASA shared some exciting news. According to the tweet, Cassini, an unmanned spacecraft sent to the planet Saturn, has discovered ingredients for life in the plume of particles spraying from Saturn's moon Enceladus. NASA explains further in a Tumblr post - "Our Cassini spacecraft has found that hydrothermal vents in the ocean of Saturn's icy moon Enceladus are producing hydrogen gas, which could potentially provide a chemical energy source for life."
 
"We now know Enceladus has nearly all the ingredients needed for life as we know it," said NASA.
This discovery is particularly exciting because it makes Enceladus the only place beyond earth where scientists have discovered direct evidence of a possible source of life.

As is to be expected, Twitter was supremely excited by this news. Reactions soon started pouring in thick and fast.
