Could This Alien Cell Thrive on Titan?
“In a world first, chemical engineers have taken a different look at a question astronomers and biologists have been pondering for decades: Does Saturn moon Titan host life?”
“In many respects, Saturn’s largest moon, Titan, is one of the most Earth-like worlds we have found to date. With its thick atmosphere and organic-rich chemistry, Titan resembles a frozen version of Earth, several billion years ago, before life began pumping oxygen into our atmosphere.”
Life ‘not as we know it’ possible on Saturn’s moon Titan
“A new type of methane-based, oxygen-free life form that can metabolize and reproduce similar to life on Earth has been modeled by a team of Cornell University researchers.”
Discovery Of “Arsenic-Bug” Expands Definition Of Life
