The search for alien life has been going on for a really long time, and it will definitely won’t stop. Now, it’s been revealed that NASA set its eyes on Mars and Jupiter’s moons in the quest of finding ET life. It seems that on the other hand, there are more chances to find it, according to the latest reports.
ET on Enceladus?
Mars has signs of a water-rich distant past and Europa, the icy moon of Jupiter might contain subsurface oceans, and these two locations were the target of ET life so far.
Some astronomers even pointed to Venus, which looked a lot like Earth a billion years ago, and this was also another potential location where astronomers have been looking.
On the other hand, some scientists believe that we should be looking to Enceladus, which is a moon of Saturn. There’s growing evidence that this tiny and bright moon, which has only 310 miles in diameter, is hiding a roiling saltwater ocean, and this could support microbial life.
NASA calls Enceladus “one of the solar system’s most scientifically interesting destinations.”
“Enceladus has become a promising lead in our search for worlds where life could exist,” NASA stated on its website.

NASA astronaut hints at alien life
In other news, not too long ago, it’s been revealed that NASA veteran astronaut Michael Collins just shed some light on the presence of alien life outside of our planet, and he tweeted about encountering some alien forms on other planets.
The NASA astronaut was for a little time the loneliest man in the universe. Just in case you don’t know what’s this all about, well, it happened when he solitary orbited the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission back in 1969.
The astronaut was not that lonely after all, and he had some suspicions about alien life in deep space.
