The overlord of the human earth is intelligent life and the only intelligent civilization in the solar system. Since the birth of mankind and the formation of civilization, people have been full of desire and yearning for the starry sky. They want to know what the stars are in the sky and whether there is the same intelligent life as human beings.
With the rapid development of human civilization, people’s desire for the starry sky is becoming stronger and stronger. Soon after human beings entered the road of scientific and technological development, this desire was finally realized. Human beings walked out of the earth and began to explore the universe. When human beings walk out of the earth and see the vast universe, in addition to feeling shocked and incredible, a wish that has been circling human beings for countless years also appears in people’s minds again.
This wish is to explore the possibility of the existence of extraterrestrial life and alien civilization. Many people may not be sure whether there will be extraterrestrial life and alien civilization before human beings go out of the earth. At that time, human beings, like frogs in the well, only saw the sky overhead. However, when human beings stepped out of the earth, their vision suddenly enlarged by countless times. At this time, only a few people still doubt the existence of extraterrestrial life, and most people began to strengthen the existence of extraterrestrial life and extraterrestrial civilization.
Although most people believe that extraterrestrial life and extraterrestrial civilization exist, any conjecture can only be realized by finding real evidence. As a result, scientists began a project to search for extraterrestrial life and civilization. At the earliest time, about 40 years ago, scientists launched Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft into space.
The mission of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 is to go all the way out of the solar system, looking for and exploring the existence of extraterrestrial life and extraterrestrial civilization. On the spaceship, with all kinds of information about human civilization, they are still at the coordinates of the earth. After more than 40 years of flight, they have now left the top of the sun and entered interstellar space. However, although they have entered interstellar space, they are still in the solar system, far from flying out of the solar system.
In addition to sending exploration spacecraft to search for extraterrestrial life and alien civilization, scientists also search for the existence of extraterrestrial civilization through astronomical telescopes and other observation equipment, or search for the mysterious signal of extraterrestrial civilization by searching and receiving the radio electromagnetic wave of the universe. In fact, these two methods are not very helpful to the exploration of extraterrestrial life and extraterrestrial civilization.
Although our telescopes can detect stars, galaxies or planets that are very far away, tens of light-years, hundreds of light-years or even farther away, it is impossible to rely on telescopes to determine whether there is extraterrestrial life or civilization on distant planets. Only detectors or spacecraft can observe them in close range. However, with the current technology of human beings, we can’t even connect the solar system If you can’t get out, it’s impossible for the spacecraft to make close observation.
In fact, it is very difficult to find the alien civilization by exploring and receiving the mysterious radio signals from the universe. Even if the radio telescope can receive the radio waves from the alien civilization, it is a great challenge for human beings to crack such signals. We should know that alien civilization and human civilization are two completely different civilizations, and the development path may be totally different. The radio wave technology of alien civilization may be a model that human beings can not understand.
It can be seen that it is very, very difficult to find extraterrestrial life and civilization outside the solar system with the current science and technology of human beings. Therefore, scientists will return their main focus to the solar system, which may be the only one in the solar system Intelligent civilization, however, does not mean that only the earth has life. It is possible that ordinary life also exists on other planets.
There are eight planets in the solar system. Scientists focus on Mars, which has many similarities with the earth. It is also considered by scientists to be the planet most likely to have life. But decades later, scientists have not found any life on Mars. Scientists are exploring Jupiter, Saturn and their moons as well as Mars.
Because the gas giant planets of Jupiter and Saturn cannot be detected in the atmosphere with human science and technology, we know very little about the real situation of Jupiter and Saturn. Although scientists have not found much on Jupiter and Mars, they have made significant discoveries among their many moons, one of which has attracted great attention of scientists.
This is Titan, the largest satellite orbiting Saturn and the second largest in the solar system. The reason why this satellite has attracted great attention of scientists is that it is the only satellite in the solar system with a thick atmosphere. You know, a thick atmosphere has a very important factor in whether a planet can give birth to life.
One of the important reasons for the birth of life on the earth is that the earth has a thick atmosphere, which can not only block all kinds of cosmic radiation, but also effectively protect the loss of liquid water on the earth’s surface, but also effectively block the impact of small planets from space. It can be seen that a thick atmosphere is a necessary condition for the birth of life on a planet.
Titan has a thick atmosphere, will there be life? In order to explore the situation of Titan, scientists launched an exploration spacecraft. When the spacecraft approached Titan and went deep into the atmosphere, it took pictures that excited the scientists.
Unfortunately, the exploration spacecraft did not really penetrate the surface of Titan. When it was about to get closer to take clearer pictures, an accident happened, and the exploration spacecraft fell for unknown reasons. Although scientists did not get more detailed data about Titan, the probe spacecraft took some precious photos of Titan before it fell.
So why are scientists so excited to see these pictures? It turns out that there are many lakes and huge oceans on the surface of Titan. This discovery confirms that Titan has a relatively complete ecological cycle system, which is the standard configuration of a living planet. However, the liquid ocean above Titan is different from what we think. It is not composed of water, but of liquid methane and ethane.
The reason is that Titan has a large amount of gaseous methane in its thick atmosphere, and the temperature of Titan is relatively low. These gaseous methane fall to the surface of the planet in the form of rain, forming the current ocean of liquid methane. This is an incredible discovery, which shows that in the universe, anything impossible can happen.
Titan has a thick atmosphere and forms a methane ocean in the form of rainfall. Although this ecological cycle system is completely different from the earth, scientists speculate that Titan may have special life. They live on methane and live in the methane ocean. The main component of Titan’s surface is methane. If there is life, it is also a kind of life based on methane gas.
Through the major discovery of Titan, scientists have a new understanding of the possible existence forms of extraterrestrial life, which provides an important reference for human beings to explore and find extraterrestrial life in the future. Whether there is life on Titan is still unknown. Because of its thick atmosphere and special environment, it is very difficult for the spacecraft to land on Titan just like landing on Mars with the current human technology.
However, with the rapid development of human science and technology, it is believed that in the near future, scientists will send another exploration spacecraft to Titan to conduct a more detailed exploration of its surface. At that time, there may be more important discoveries and the mystery of Titan’s life may be revealed. Human beings have been exploring extraterrestrial life for half a century. Although there is no discovery yet, it is believed that the discovery of extraterrestrial life is not far away. Mars and Titan are the most likely planets to discover extraterrestrial life in the solar system.
