Saturn's ocean moon Enceladus is able to support life − my research team is working out how to detect extraterrestrial cells there

I'm very cautiously optimistic at the prospect of finding life on (in?) any of the icy moons. For all we know, sunlight and/or lightning could be key components for abiogenesis, as well as other factors not present on these bodies. It's also possible that life was seeded from space in the early solar system, so, without a surface capable of sustaining life, it may not be possible for life to really take hold.

With much of the world literally and figuratively on fire, an extraterrestrial attack is likely what humankind collectively needs to brutally endure in order to survive the very-long-term from ourselves:

Humanity could all unite for the first time ever to defend against, attack and defeat the humanicidal multi-tentacled ETs, the latter needing to be an even greater nemesis than our own formidably divisive politics and perceptions of differences, both real and perceived — especially those involving color and race.

During this much-needed human allegiance, we’d be forced to work closely side-by-side together and witness just how humanly similar we are to each other in every significant way. (But then I’ve been informed that one or more human parties might actually attempt to forge an allegiance with the ETs to better their own chances for survival, thus indicating that our deficient human condition may be even worse than I had originally thought.)

Still, maybe some five or more decades later when all traces of the nightmarish ET invasion are gone, we'll inevitably revert to those same politics to which we humans seem so hopelessly collectively and maybe even individually prone — including those of scale: the intercontinental, international, national, provincial or state, regional and municipal. And again we slide downwards.

It’s quite plausible that if the world’s population was somehow reduced to just a few city blocks of seemingly similar residents, there’d sooner or later be some form of notable inter-neighborhood hostilities.
