Washington, January 28. Scientists from NASA came up with the easiest way to search for traces of life, including the satellites of Saturn and Jupiter — Enceladus and Europe. This writes the journal Analytical Chemistry.
the Publication notes that the search for the living and intelligent universe long been among the priorities of researchers. However, the word "alive" scientists can mean anything, including elementary atom or molecule.
in Addition to searching for the living, scientists have also constantly sought convenient ways tools to search and think I found the simplest: search for life beyond Earth by using a simple reaction — the binding of amino acids with glowing substances.
scientists say the new method will allow researchers to understand which amino acids in the samples came from nonliving sources and which became the product life.
