- NASA's Melissa Trainer reviewed what we know about prebiotic chemistry on Titan and explore ideal locales and exploration strategies to search for evidence of, or progression towards, life on the moon of Saturn. Following decades observing Titan, NASA scientists have discovered that the moon has all the ingredients needed to produce life as we know it. Advanced chemical synthesis takes place in its atmosphere and a subsurface ocean and icy crust provide opportunities for all of these ingredients to mix.
