Organic compounds that can precede life found on Saturn’s ice moon

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft which plunged into Saturn’s atmosphere and burnt up sent important data before its demise. Cassini picked up new kinds of organic compounds on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. These compounds are the precursors to Amino Acids and hence indicates that the moon has precursors for life to begin on its surface.

Glycines are literally everywhere. They were deposited on every surface in the solar system during the late heavy bombardment.

VERY interesting. Mars is a complete and utter waste of time and money, and always has been. Enceladus and Europa are prime targets for at least microbial life, maybe.
