The Chemical Laptop is a necessary part of finding life. It was created by National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA’s) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the point of the Chemical Laptop is to find Amino and Fatty acids on planets and moons like Mars, Enceladus (pronounced N-sell-a-dis), and Europa (Enceladus, and Europa are some icy moons of Saturn.) The laptop has a microchip to find the correct balance of Amino and Fatty acids by performing many tests (a microchip is a chip that makes a computer think.)
