Re: Enceladus


Yes I found that interesting. I wonder if there is life in that water. Also reminds me we have this continuing problem with plastics and areas in the sea that are awash with it. I'm going to see if I can cut down the amount of plastic I use or buy.

Re: Enceladus


Some of the worse plastics pollution you may not be aware of is micro plastics.

These mainly come from washing man made fibre clothing and are ingested by marine life.

Yes I'd seen this somewhere, good point, it might have been one of your videos. I think I first got concerned when I saw it on QI and there was a news story the other day. Tesco recycle the plastic bags, but there's a lot of plastic in the things I buy.

Um... No. There isn't enough data yet to constitute 'proof'. Strong evidence? Certainly; but not proof. At least not to me. but I'm not an astrophysicist, so what do I know? Wink
