Alien life the target of NASA mission to Jupiter’s frozen moon

NASA’s hunt for extraterrestrial life within our solar system is set to continue with plans to send a robotic landing craft to drill into Jupiter's icy moon Europa in search of life.

The frozen satellite orbits the gas giant, which is located roughly 390 million miles (628.3 million km) from Earth, and is thought to be the best chance of finding life in our solar system due to what is believed to be a vast ocean hiding beneath its icy exterior.

Early last year, the space agency's Planetary Science Division began to assess the feasibility of a lander mission to Europa. Such studies are routinely conducted by NASA’s Science Definition Team (SDT) before any mission is undertaken.
