While it could be the title of a sci-fi magazine story, it is an actual possibility that Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons, could have everything needed to host life. Out of Saturn’s 53 moons, Europa and Enceladus are the only two with the necessary conditions to support life systems, but as of today we can’t still confirm that we’ll meet Saturn aliens any time soon.

What challenges these moons to sustain life?

While still considered as “potentially habitable”, Europa and Enceladus exist outside of the Solar System’s circumstellar habitable zone, which define the limits of life within the solar system in which water can exist as a liquid at the surface and sustain an atmosphere. If life was to exist in either moon, it would be confined to subsurface habitats.

What gives us the idea there could be life on Enceladus?

Scientists from the Southwest Research Institute (SWRI) discovered complex carbon-rich molecules from the liquid ocean beneath Enceladus’ icy surface, which makes it the only body in the Solar System besides Earth to contain all requirements for hosting life.

What about Europa?

The supposed smoothness and recent existence of Europa’s surface have led scientists to believe that a liquid water ocean exists beneath it, which could harbor life in an environment similar to Earth’s deep-ocean hydrothermal vents.

While we are still on baby steps, scientists are already planning missions to provide more in-depth analysis of both moons’ plumes and what kind of biological processes are happening there.

This month the world will experience the release of the much-anticipated Joker film starring legendary actor Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Todd Phillips. This psychological thriller is the perfect opportunity for Phoenix to showcase his acting abilities, which have been already praised in numerous films and nominated to three Academy Awards.

Let’s review some of Phoenix’s most notable works in Hollywood:

Her (2013): This science-fiction romantic drama follows the passionate relationship between Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix) and Samantha, an artificially intelligent virtual assistant personified through a female voice (Scarlett Johansson). In this film we can appreciate Phoenix’ acting skills when interacting with Her through a small device.

The Master (2012): This film tells the story of a WWII veteran struggling to adjust to life after the war. Phoenix’s powerful acting as Freddie Quell shows the reality of post-war American soldiers and the damage it has done in their minds.

Gladiator (2000): Perhaps one of Joaquin Phoenix’s most notable works is this epic historical drama directed by Ridley Scott. Critics praised Phoenix’s acting as Commodus, the amoral and twisted son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, as he fights against Maximus Decimus Meridius played by Russel Crowe.

Walk The Line (2005): Phoenix portrays Johnny Cash in this biographical drama film and his romance with June Carter (Reese Witherspoon), as he ascends in the country music scene as one of the most influential artists. Both Phoenix’s and Witherspoon’s performances were well received by critics, as they sing, lay instruments and show great chemistry on film.

Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish climate activist who has become an internet phenomenon all around the world this year, has spread a message of urgency in regards to fighting climate change. Thunberg first became known for her activism at age 15 in 2018, and now is addressing the elites at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Her message is simple: “I want you to act as if our house is on fire”. Early action is key to prevent the fire from spreading through all the house - not planning results in a decade or more. Easy - preventing climate change through mitigation is cheaper and more efficient than having to adapt to a changed climate.

Thunberg’s speech has inspired a number of school-aged peers, who have acknowledged the need to focus on climate change, as well as wealthy philanthropists and investors who have already donated almost half a million pounds to support her message throughout the world.

Right now, are experiencing a major revolution - a lifestyle revolution from the youth that embrace changing the way we live. Reducing our own carbon footprint by giving up air travel or by not eating meat are just some of the suggested solutions, as well as transitioning away from fossil fuels to sustainable energy - spending whatever is necessary along the way.

Galaxies are one of the universe’s biggest observable systems. Big galaxies like our own Milky Way have all its stars move around supermassive black holes at their center, and are used to “eating up” smaller galaxies in their path. But just as the bigger fish eats the smaller ones, we are at the mercy of the gigantic Andromeda Galaxy, which is on a course to merge with the Milky Way in around 4.5 billion years from now.

Binge-Eating Galaxy

Andromeda has a bigger and more complex stellar halo than our galaxy, and has cannibalized multiple galaxies in “binge-eating” frenzies at least twice in the last 10 billion years. This monstrous neighbor will eventually swallow up our home galaxy too, and right now scientists are finding out how this will happen.

How can we see this?

Even though the Andromeda Galaxy is 2,537 million light years away from Earth, scientists can observe its phenomena by using five different telescopes. Researchers have also been able to recreate Andromeda’s history by analyzing Andromeda’s dense group of stars.

No need to panic

While the idea of seeing our galaxy absorbed by the Andromeda Galaxy seems terrifying enough, humanity will first have to deal with the Sun expanding and swallowing each planet in our Solar System at a time. So for the moment just sit back, and relax and enjoy the title things in life.

If you’re into gorey films, read on!

Rob Zombie - known for his blood-soaked and gory films - has built a collection of horror cult classics for more than 15 years, and on September 16th his new film ‘3 From Hell’ premiered as a follow up to his 2003 film ‘House of 1000 Corpses’ and its 2005 sequel ‘The Devil’s Rejects’. This trilogy centers on the Firefly family, a Charles Manson-inspired homicidal family.

Captain Spaulding is back in full force

Zombie picks up the story of the iconic Captain Spaulding, Baby Firefly and Otis Firefly after surviving a furious shootout with the police and being thrown into prison. But pure evil cannot be contained as they manage to escape and go for a terror ride to hell and back. Other cast members include Danny Trejo as Rondo and Daniel Roebuck as Morris Green.

The director will please old-school horror fans with this movie, as the industrial metal artist-turned underground film director takes inspiration from the 70’s horror films aesthetics and violent plots to build what is now a cult trilogy.

Limited theater releases expected

As it’s been the case with many of Rob Zombie’s releases, ‘3 From Hell’ will get a very limited theater release, in sights of maintaining his underground and cult-following director status - something in which he feels very comfortable at.

If you’re one of the lucky ones to catch an early screening of Zombie’s latest flick, consider yourself a lucky one!
