Is There Intelligent Life Out There?

Intelligent life in outer space could be a real thing now that National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, has discovered that Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, and Jupiter’s moon, Europa, could have intelligent life. After recent data showing plumes erupting near the ocean they believe this is a real possibility. Intelligent life in outer space has always been a question in everyone’s mind.

After reading through some articles about if there is intelligent life in space, I’ve come up with my own idea.

The amount of planets in the galaxy are billions upon billions. Looking into CNN’s article about Saturn’s moon—Enceladus—and Jupiter’s moon being able to support life got me thinking, “Is there intelligent life out there?”. I did some more research and the probability of life forms on planets beside ours is “less than one in 10 billion trillion” said Mike Wall from Space.com.

I mean who knows if there is life out there. The Cassini probe, the robot that’s doing the exploring at the moment, has discovered “plumes erupting through the icy surface” in the oceans of Enceladus. The scientists here on Earth have said that they “detected life near the points of deep ocean”.

Could there be intelligent life down there? Hopefully the Cassini probe can look into it some more without crashing.

Who knows if it’s the right thing to meet intelligent life out there? For all we know, the intelligent life out there can be friendly or hostile.

My overall opinion about other intelligent life in space is that there are other life forms in space besides us, and I agree even more with this now that NASA said that intelligent life could be on both of those moons. However, I have to agree with the space.com article that we won’t meet them for a very long time because we just don’t have the technology to go out into space exploring for long periods of time (with astronauts and not probes).
