After all the posts about possible locations of life in the solar system, we now have word from a NASA scientist about where we will most likely find life. And that is Enceladus.
So, why Enceladus? Well, we now know it has hydrothermal vents, which are an excellent place to look for life. It also has plumes of water coming from geysers near the south pole. We can analyse the composition of the water quite easily.
However, there are problems. Cassini isn’t equipped to detect the right kind of molecules. Also, there are no planned missions set to be near Enceladus. It’ll have to wait.
