Bridenstine described this as a “interesting” discovery, citing that it could point to a biometric signature. “As normal in science, the more we learn, the more questions we have,” he said. “This is a virtuous cycle of discovery, including the discovery of potential biometric signatures in other worlds.”
The Director of NASA explained that four missions are being considered for up to two Discovery missions to be selected in 2021. It is the moon of Jupiter.” “The other two missions considered were proposed missions to Venus. One focuses on understanding the atmosphere and the other focuses on understanding the geological history of Venus.”
