Pakistani astrobiologist Dr Nozair Khawaja with his team has discovered an organic molecule called Enceladus, also among 62 moons orbiting Saturn.

Dr Khawaja, a researcher at the Free University Berlin, is driving a group of scientists from the United States (US) and Germany. Khawaja’s group was leading exploration on information accumulated from the moon’s aqueous center prior assembled by National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Cassini rocket. Dr Khawaja was born in Wazirabad a city situated in Gujranwala region of Punjab. He finished his Masters in Astronomy and Space Sciences from Punjab University. Afterward, the Pakistani researcher procured a PhD in Geosciences from Heidelberg University in Germany. He has likewise filled in as a post-doctorate researcher at the Institute of Earth Sciences at same German university.

 Enceladus is around 500 kilometers in distance across. Experts have named the revelation to be the first of its sort past Earth, making Enceladus qualified to be in the rundown of the most eminent contender for having extra-terrestrial life. Addressing a news channel, Dr. Khawaja stated, I have discovered little however dissolvable and receptive natural compound pluming from the profundities [ocean] of Enceladus. The compound from the sea of Enceladus is as of now a known element of amino acids found in the seas of Earth.

Despite the fact that NASA’s Cassini shuttle propelled in 1997 finished its examination strategic 2017, researchers still can’t seem to think about all the exploration material accumulated during the rocket’s fundamental crucial. As time passes, Enceladus is getting to be one of the most livable potential articles in the nearby planetary group to study hints of life after Earth. The following sensible advance ought to be to investigate the Cassini space test information and discover more bio-marks in the subsurface sea of Enceladus. More space missions ought to be proposed and wanted to investigate this little world which is brimming with astonishments.

The natural particle, found by Dr. Khawaja and his group, is made out of oxygen and nitrogen and has been wrapped in ice grain. It can undoubtedly be named as a forerunner of amino corrosive. Enceladus’ sea is secured with an ice sheet, like Earth’s frosty shafts. The ice grains and the vapors that are shot out from this sea through aqueous movement are discharged in space from little splits on the moon’s surface.

On Earth, such occasions have been seen at vents or hot fireplaces on the sea floor. The aqueous vents on Earth launch numerous essential particles and mixes fundamental forever. Enceladus may likewise hold a similar system as it regurgitates fundamental particles, a wonder recorded by the NASA and affirmed by researchers. In 2018, Dr. Khawaja had additionally watched a moderately enormous compound from Enceladus.

In 2019, NASA had regarded Dr. Khawaja with the ‘Gathering Achievement Award’ for Cassini’s Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA). He is likewise a beneficiary of the Horneck-Brack Award from the European Astrobiology Network Association in 2018.

His work has showed up in exceptionally referred to peer-evaluated logical diaries, for example, Nature, look into diaries and the Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society and Science. Dr. Khawaja’s most recent research around the key natural atom on Enceladus has likewise discovered a spot in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society (MNRAS).
