NASA has a life detection instrument ready to fly to Europa or Enceladus

NASA scientists have developed a new device designed to autonomously detect life in aqueous plumes blasted into space from icy moons like Enceladus and possibly Europa.

Saturnthe moon Enceladus and Jupiterthe moon Europe have long intrigued scientists as prime locations in the solar system where life could exist. Both have hidden oceans of liquid water with potentially habitable conditions beneath their ice plating, but reaching those oceans directly through thick ice will be difficult.
