As scientists find plumes on a nearby moon, the flowing jets of water could be our best hope of meeting aliens in our own solar system

One of the most promising places in the solar system to search for life is Jupiter's moon Europa, an icy world with a slushy, salty, subsurface ocean. Peering through the crust to the gooey center below is a challenge, but luckily it seems that the water is meeting us halfway. Old data has turned up new evidence of water plumes spraying through the icy shell into space...
