Looking for Life in All the Wrong Places
December 5, 2012
In addition to searching for FORMER life on a desert planet like Mars, I'd like to see some robot missions to places where there is a greater probability of EXISTING life forms. It appears that Jupiter's moon Europa has an ocean of liquid water...beneath a frozen layer. There may be other moons in our Solar system with environments that may harbor EXISTING life forms. Let's go to these places!!!

Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
