Are you excited to know that a top NASA scientist said that we are definitely going to find alien life sooner than we ever thought - that is, in 20-30 years! Or aren't you?
last April 7 by Ellen Stofan,
a top NASA scientist
and a former astronaut John Grunsfeld,
who is now associate administrator
for NASA's Science Mission Directorate
said that we are very close to finding alien life
maybe on the red planet Mars
or on an icy moon around some planet
in our very own solar system,
and also beyond which is a much bigger place,
there maybe more life-sustaining environments out there.
Recent discoveries point to Jupiter's moons Europa and Ganymede
and Saturn's Enceladus,
that beneath their icy shelves
there are oceans of liquid water.
And in the ancient past,
Mars was covered by oceans
and what is now observed
as seasonal dark streaks in its surface
maybe caused by salty water from the oceans before.
Alien life is not just about human-like creatures,
it can be something microscopic,
or insect-like or anything that's alive.
