During a news briefing held today, NASA has announced the spacecraft Cassini had found hydrogen as a gas - the form needed to support single-celled organisms in the moon's ocean.

A moon circling around Jupiter and another around Saturn could be the closest places in our system where NASA thinks the highest concentration of "ingredients for life" exist. Details of the discovery were published in the journal Science today. Cassini also looked into the plume composition during its flybys. The Hubble space telescope is observing Europa from a distance for evidence of plumes of water, similar to the ones seen on Enceladus.
