Was Arthur C. Clarke Right – Again?

Was Arthur C. Clarke Right – Again?
June 4, 2010

Arthur C. Clark, that great visionary always thought that life would be discovered on the moon, Europa. Titan will do in a pinch – but an odd one.

Titan is one of the most inhopitable “worlds” in the solar system.

“…Scientists had expected sunlight interacting with chemicals in the atmosphere to produce acetylene that falls down to coat Titan’s surface. But Cassini detected no acetylene there. Experts warn that there could be other explanations for the results. But taken together, they fulfil two important conditions necessary for methane-based life to exist. Nasa astrobiologist Chris McKay said: ‘If these signs do turn out to be a sign of life, it would be doubly exciting because it would represent a second form of life independent from water-based life on Earth.’ Scientists believe that when the Sun swells up, swallowing Earth, conditions could be ideal on a warmer Titan. Professor John Zarnecki, of the Open University, said: ‘We believe the chemistry is there for life to form. It just needs heat and warmth to kick-start the process.
