Harry Coumnas Shares His Views on the Possibility of Life on Solar System's Natural Satellites Harry Coumnas, a young scientist from Columbia was on his first visit to South Africa last week. The purpose of his visit was to attend an annual science conference that was held to discuss the possibility of life on Solar System's natural satellites. The attendees included renowned astronomers, scientists, and inventors from around the world. Harry, who was attending this science conference for the very first time made quite an impressive on everyone with his logical statements that were backed by solid evidence. Harry Coumnas said that he strongly believes there are several natural satellites within our Solar System which are habitable. The sixth largest moon of Saturn, “Enceladus”, he feels is the best bet for extraterrestrial life. An icy moon with the presence of life supporting elements, like organic molecules, water, etc.; Enceladus certainly seems habitable. During the conference, Harry shared that the surface of Enceladus is made of 99% water ice and has liquid water underneath it. Another factor that indicates the possibility of life on this icy moon is that it has a boiling core of molten rock which can cause a toasty temperature essential to harbor life. Apart from Saturn’s moon, Enceladus, Harry Coumnas talked about some other natural satellites that he believes have the potential for life, such as – Europa (One of the Moons of Jupiter) Io (Jupiter's Moon) Titan (Largest Moon of Saturn) Coumnas said that he will continue studying about habitable planets and satellites, & also shared his plans to build residential communities as well as restaurants on them so that human beings get to experience living outside the earth. One of his biggest achievements in the field of science so far is developing a smart device for communicating with the aliens.
