I think the far more interesting discussion is if the planet is void of life, should we bring life to it? If we put a man-made object inside the atmosphere, we most certainly will, whether we intend to or not. But there is also the ability to bring life that we think will thrive in the environment, based on what we believe the conditions to be. It raises some interesting ethical questions. If we did, what would our goals be? Is "to start a new evolutionary path" a valid answer?
The author left out some key facts. Colorado University-Boulder scientist also cautioned that the presence of sub-surface water was not yet proven fact. Several other explanations for the jets were equally plausible, he said.
"It could still be warm ice vaporising away into space. It could even be places where the crust rubs against itself from tidal motions and the friction creates liquid water that would then evaporate into space," he said.
"These are all hypotheses but we can't verify any one with the results so far."
I am very optimistic. If there is ice water and even liquid water then life has a very good chance to evolve on Enceladus considering the low temperatures. Some bacteria can survive at temperatures -100°C.
We should reenact the movie Waterworld. We could create a nautical society, albeit a gritty, primitive and superstitious one, with a patriarchal structure.
really i think it may be possible to happen , why cant it to be happen.
