The search for life in our solar system hasn’t yet uncovered any, but it has narrowed down the field of likely candidates. Here are five of the places deemed most capable of hosting alien life forms.

The search for life in our solar system hasn’t yet uncovered any, but it has narrowed down the field of likely candidates.

Here are five of the places deemed most capable of hosting alien life forms.

Number 5. Europa. One of the larger of of Saturn’s 67-or-so moons, the lunar body is believed to have a vast ocean nestled beneath its icy cover. That combined with a favorable combination of hydrogen and oxygen has researchers hopeful signs of microbial life will be detected.

Number 4. Venus. Yes, it’s hot there, but the space above the clouds is decidedly less toasty than the surface. Its climate and chemical composition may well be home to loads of airborne living things.

Number 3. Enceladus. This natural satellite of Saturn not only has water, experts believe a salty body of it makes contact with the moon’s rocky mantle. The potential chemical reactions that occur down there could include the life-creating kind.

Number 2. Titan. Of all the chemicals existing on and around the largest of Saturn’s moons, hydrogen cyanide is among the most likely to lay the groundwork for alien development. As luck would have it, Titan’s atmosphere is filled with it.

Number 1. Mars. While the planet no longer has water, there is a possibility that whatever may have been living in it stuck around. Researchers consider the Recurring Slope Lineae on the Red Planet a great place to look for microscopic survivors.

Which of our solar system’s bodies do you think is most likely to host life?
