As scientists have learned more about our solar system, they’ve realized our best bet for finding life in the neighborhood is buried in ice-covered oceans.

But those ice shells make them difficult to study, which is why NASA is investing in state-of-the-art technology to understand what’s happening beneath the surface of these potentially habitable places, like Enceladus, one of Saturn’s moons.

NASA is developing some of its most advanced technology to date in hopes of cracking this moon’s secrets.

That includes a newly announced machine called Submillimeter Enceladus Life Fundamentals Instrument, or SELFI.

There’s just one little problem: Right now, SELFI doesn’t have any missions to Enceladus to hitch a ride on, NASA is evaluating two proposed orbital missions to the icy moon, but has yet to commit to anything.
