As we know, Oberon is the second largest moon of Uranus and even though it is composed of nearly fifty percent ice, it is the reddest of Uranus' major moons. As you can see, Oberon has a myriad of interesting things deserving research.
We should examine the moon's geological structure to understand its history of evolution. Based on my research, there may be a subsurface ocean in OberonIf it is true, there might be special bacteria who have the ability to live in these frigid conditions. These would be a new species of bacteria because the bacteria on Earth have not adapted to live in such freezing conditions. If the bacteria do exist, researchers can learn a great deal from Oberon's bacteria on how to deal with the cold weather that is caused by climate change.
Furthermore, there might be some valuable new elements found in the craters. As we know, different objects, such as meteorites, cause craters by crashing with the surface of planets or moons. They come from all over the space, therefore, they might bring undiscovered elements when they crash and leave debris. Such discovery would be very beneficial for us on Earth because it could lead to the development of new materials and technology. This can be especially useful for space machines since they already came from the space; thus, they would be more suitable.
All of these interesting aspects of Oberon, with research, could improve our lives on Earth. Although these things look impossible, our technology is improving day by day, and there is nothing we can not do if we believe and try.
