NASA has a life-detecting instrument ready to fly to icy moons

NASA scientists have developed a new device designed to autonomously detect life in the watery plumes shooting into space from icy moons like Enceladus and perhaps Europa.

Saturn‘s moon Enceladus and Jupiter‘s moon Europe have long intrigued scientists as prime locations in the solar system Where life could exist. Both have hidden oceans of liquid water with potentially habitable conditions under their icy veneers, but it will be difficult to reach those oceans directly through the thick ice.
