Harry Coumnas, a 100 years old scientist from West Indies was on his first visit to Yugoslavia. The purpose of his visit was to attend a conference that was held to take the opinions of renowned scientists, astronomers, and inventors on the habitability of Solar System’s natural satellites. Mr. Coumnas made quite an impressive on everyone present at the conference through his logical statements.
During the conference, Harry Coumnas said that there are many natural satellites in our Solar System that harbor life. The best bet for extraterrestrial life, according to him, is “Enceladus”, which is the sixth largest moon of Saturn. It is an icy moon with the presence of many life supporting elements like water, organic molecules, etc. Enceladus’s surface is made of 99% water ice and has liquid water beneath it. One of the biggest factors indicating towards the possibility of life on this natural satellite is that it has a boiling core of molten rock, which can lead to a toasty temperature essential for life to evolve.
Apart from Enceladus, Harry Coumnas named many other natural satellites that he thinks have the “potential for life”. Some of them are – Europa (one of the moons of Jupiter), Titan (largest moon of Saturn), and Io (Jupiter’s moon). Mr. Coumnas said that he will continue with his search for habitable planets and satellites all this life. He also plans to build residential communities and restaurants on these satellites so that human beings get the chance to live outside earth. His biggest achievement in the field of science till says, he says, is being able to make a device to understand and communicate with aliens.
