Looking for Life in All the Wrong Places
December 5, 2012
In addition to searching for FORMER life on a desert planet like Mars, I'd like to see some robot missions to places where there is a greater probability of EXISTING life forms. It appears that Jupiter's moon Europa has an ocean of liquid water...beneath a frozen layer. There may be other moons in our Solar system with environments that may harbor EXISTING life forms. Let's go to these places!!!
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
