NASA is focusing on the lunar south pole for their upcoming Artemis space mission. A NASA scientist recently made a remarkable statement that has sparked intrigue and speculation amongst the scientific community. During an interview, he suggested that it is possible that life already exists on the moon and that it could be due to human activity.
Insider has reported that NASA planetary scientist Prabal Saxena suggests potentially habitable niches on the Moon could offer a refuge for microbial life in its hostile environment. Compared to Earth and other planets, the Moon's atmosphere is scarce, making it hard for life to thrive.
While many in the scientific community are skeptical of this claim, there is valid evidence to support his theory. In recent years, studies have found traces of water and other compounds on the moon's surface, which could potentially provide sustenance for life forms. Additionally, there are also theories that suggest that meteorites may have been a vehicle to transport microbial life from Earth to the Moon.
Saxena believes that although the Moon appears lifeless, it could potentially have signs of microbial life. While Saxena has spent time searching for extraterrestrial life in other star systems, he has recently joined a team that is searching for life within our own solar system. "If those organisms can survive in such extreme environments, then perhaps they are already on the Moon," Saxena said.
The news has generated much excitement in the scientific community but also serves as a reminder of how interconnected our home planet is with its celestial neighbor.
NASA's upcoming Artemis mission will focus on the lunar south pole, which has a unique atmosphere and landscape, making it an ideal environment to look for potential signs of life. This statement from Saxena is sure to be a source of much debate amongst scientists as they continue their exploration of the Moon and its possibility for harboring unknown life forms.
According to Saxena and his team, the theory suggests that microbial life which may exist in the niches on the Moon could have been delivered by lunar landers such as the Apollo landers. The Artemis III mission is scheduled to include a landing near one of the 13 potential landing sites at the lunar south pole which could provide more insight on this. "We don't know for sure," Saxena says. "But it's an exciting prospect."
Recent research has indicated that when visiting the south pole region of the moon in the future, visitors should keep an eye out for indications of life in very cold craters that are always in the shadow-organisms that may have made their way from Earth.
According to Saxena, it is possible for microbial life to survive in the challenging environment near the southern pole of the moon. His team is conducting research to further investigate this interesting and revolutionary concept of potential life on the moon.
"Our team has made an intriguing discovery regarding the possibility of microbial life existing in protected areas on airless bodies. Recent research has shown that certain microbial life can survive in a range of conditions, and thus we may have potentially habitable niches present. This finding is truly striking and brings to light the potential for a whole new frontier in the search for extraterrestrial life," Saxena explained with enthusiasm.
This area of the moon has never been visited by humans, but it has been discovered to have ice. It is believed that we could potentially use this ice to create water and other resources on the moon, which could be helpful for constructing moon bases. Additionally, these icy regions could potentially be locations where certain types of microbes could survive, as they are shielded from the sun's radiation.
In the near future, when humans start exploring the Moon, even though there is no existing life on it, it is likely that microbial life will thrive. "The Moon's surface is not just a dead, barren landscape," said Saxena. "We may find that it has the potential to support microbial life."
