Saturn’s icy moon Dione against the rings of Saturn, as seen by the NASA’s Cassini spacecraft.
The NASA spacecraft Cassini has detected sign of Oxygen on Dione, one of Saturn’s moon.
Dione has no liquid water, which makes it improbable that life exists there. However, this is good news for scientists who are searching for locations in our solar system where life may be present in any form.
“Some of the other moons have liquid oceans and so it is worth looking more closely at them for signs of life,” said Prof Andrew Coates of University College London, one of the co-authors of the study.
