    Hi Kevin,

    I don't know if there is life out there in our solar system, but Europa and Titan are two places where scientists are looking. NASA has an entire program devoted to looking for signs of life elsewhere in our solar system and the galaxy, whether these signs are microbes or just organic molecules that provide the chemical building blocks for life.
