With enough spontaneous statement was made by the steering scientific Advisor to NASA Ellen Stofan. Official representative of the U.S. space Agency has promised to find extraterrestrial life in the next 10 years.
"I think we will find conclusive evidence of life beyond Earth during the next decade. Over the next 20 years the population of the earth will receive concrete evidence of its existence, and possibly contacts", - quotes Stefan portal Space.com.
This ambiguous statement was made by the principal scientific Advisor to NASA during a panel discussion at the conference, devoted to the search for inhabited worlds and alien life. Stefani added that scientists space Agency understand where and how to look for life, also have a need for this technology, but did not specify why to this day a proof of the existence of aliens considered to be only theoretical.
Surprisingly also the fact that the administrator group on research missions of NASA, former astronaut John STS supported the optimism colleagues. He expresses the opinion that the life signs are detected soon enough and not only in the Solar system and beyond. "I think that all processes run in the same direction in our Solar system, whether it's icy satellite, Mars or planets of nearby stars," stressed STS.
Considering the opinion of scientists from NASA, the best conditions for the origin of life on Europa - Jupiter's moon. Specifically this planet, not the moon of Saturn - Enceladus intend to explore in the near future with the station Galileo. Not all scholars agree with this choice, however they also agree that to reach the satellites of Jupiter are considerably lighter than Saturn. Don't take off scientists from the accounts and Mars.
