Researchers expect life will now be possible on Saturn

After 85 years of discovery of planet Pluto, there have been several experiments which took place to discover life on other planets other than earth as earth’s ozone layer is getting depleted and there is a need to safeguard human life and to make them and give them a better place where life is possible. Now the scientists have been able to discover a procreation and life zone on Saturn of the galaxy.saturn

There are a lot of advantages of having life on Saturn – including the acts about Saturn, which is Saturn is the brightest object in the solar system and can be easily studied through binoculars. The top layer of Saturn has ammonia ice and it also has water ice.


Researchers have revealed that there are good chances for a new type of methane-based, oxygen-free life form to metabolize and to be procreated on earth. A team of research scholars modelled the hypothetical cell membrane, which contains small organic nitrogen compounds.

Albeit hypothetical, the cell membrane, which has been made up of small organic nitrogen compounds, was able to function in extremely cold liquid methane temperatures, a necessity for worlds with callous and cold environments such as the Titan.

The climate in Saturn today is very cold than compared to earth, but there is a possibility that titan may become warmer in the future. Six billion years from now, as the Sun becomes a red giant, surface temperatures could rise to ~200 K (−70 °C), high enough for stable oceans of water/ammonia mixture to exist on its surface. As the Sun’s ultraviolet output decreases, the haze in Titan’s upper atmosphere will be depleted, lessening the anti-greenhouse effect on its surface and enabling the greenhouse effect created by atmospheric methane to play a far greater role.

No ring system is self sustaining, and (like Saturn’s) it would eventually disappear. Theoretically, due to the jostling and collisions of the individual bodies of ice, rock and dust within the rings themselves you would have a higher incidence of meteors entering the Earth’s atmosphere (with a concomitant higher incidence of a few striking the surface as small to tiny meteorites). So, over millions or billions of years, assuming the composition of the ring system is similar to that of the average asteroid/meteor or comet, the Earth would have a tiny bit higher incidences of such rare elements as iridium.

Lastly, as all bodies exert gravitational force on all other bodies no matter the difference in sizes, there would be an imperceptible (but probably still measurable) gravitational change which would have an incredibly small effect on such things as the tides. How much of an effect on tides would depend on the total mass of the rings and the position of the ring system orbit.
