From all the places in our solar system (of course, except the Earth), the moon of Jupiter Europe can have the greatest chance of meeting life. Scientists studying the planet are intrigued by their vast ocean of liquid water, which is hidden beneath a thick ice coat, and life may also hide there.

" Potential habitat for Europe's underground ocean depends on its chemical composition, which can be reflected in the geologically young surface of Europe, the researchers write.
But actually visiting Europe to see what the oceans are doing is not in the cards right now, so scientists have done the next best thing. Using Hubble's powerful spectrographic tool, researchers are able to wash the composition to the nearby worlds, and in the case of Europe it is very, very salty.
If the planets are as salty as they look, it might be a sign that the waters there are suitable for life. But if any forms of life are ever rooted there, it is a much more difficult question to answer.
Researchers have considered the possibility of sending some sort of robotic probe to the surface of the planet. His incredibly thick layer of ice would have to be penetrated to take a sample of the liquid water down. Such a mission, however, would be expensive, and although there is great interest among scientists looking for life outside of Earth, NASA and other groups are largely focused on moon and mars travels in the near future.
