The New Scientist’s online magazine has an interesting post entitled “Hints of life found on Saturn moon” which opens with the ambitious sentence:”Two potential signatures of life on Saturn’s moon Titan have been found by the Cassini spacecraft”.

The University of California at San Diego’s “Life in the Universe” course syllabus has a nice page specifically directed at this topic and focusing on the two moons: Europa (one of Jupiter’s 4 moons) and Titan.

Finally, I recommend you watch the video by Carolyn Porco entitled “Could a Saturn moon harbor life?”
