|Is it possible for any life to exist on Saturn?|
|Question Date: 2013-03-14|
Well, no one knows. Saturn is a giant ball of
gas and as we know life, the prospects do not
look so good. HOWEVER, the satellites of Saturn,
meaning the MOONS of Saturn, may be hospitable
place for life.
It is very unlikely that life as we
understand it could exist on Saturn. However, we
know of only one form of life in the universe:
the carbon-water-based life that we have here on
Earth. If there are other kinds of life that
aren't based on carbon and water, then they
might be able to live on other planets in our
solar system, possibly including Saturn. We will
not know if such other forms of life are
possible until we've looked for them, which we
don't have the ability to do yet.
