Alien Oceans: The Search for Life in the Depths of Space
Many people believe that life exists outside of our planet Earth. Kevin Peter Hand is one such person. Hand is a scientist for NASA; his main area of expertise is up in space, but he has had experience down below in the dark ocean depths as well. Based on his discovery of life on the ocean floor, he concludes that life is possible in the underground oceans on certain moons in our solar system. Throughout Alien Oceans: The Search for Life in the Depths of Space, Hand explains why he believes that there are hidden oceans on moons such as Europa, Titan, and Enceladus.
This book would make anyone excited about space. The research presented is thorough and the pictures included are amazing. Hand dives into every aspect of life imaginable. Written from an evolutionary viewpoint, Hand believes that if we succeed in finding life elsewhere, we will also succeed in discovering our origins. There is plenty of in-depth research presented, so those best suited to reading this book will have an interest in space, biology, and cellular activity, and enjoy a lesson in it all.
