NASA has made a great discovery with it’s Cassini mission to study the moons of Saturn. Hydrocarbon lakes have been discovered to exist in liquid form on the surface of the rocky moon. THere is also an atmosphere of hydrogen and methane, which scientists claim could be breathing material for life that functions quite differently than that of Earth. Life on the moon could breathe this different atmosphere, and probably exists in primitive microbial forms. New discoveries are expected as the Cassini satellite continues to take images of the moon’s surface.
