where is the space bug?

As it seems just a matter of time before humans find life off the earth....I would be curious where and when people think it may happen, or if?

My guess is this decade on Titan.

I think it's going to be hard to find evidence of current extraterrestrial life that most people will accept. Even if there were life on Titan, I very much doubt that such evidence will be found in the next decade. In fifty years, perhaps.

If we find it near Jupiter, it's gonna be on Europa I'd guess. It's got oceans. Water = potential for life.

I'd also have to go with Europa on this one for *current* ET life forms. The whole moon is pretty much a water planet with an ice coating. Callisto and Ganymede (may) have this property as well (a water and/or slush mantle) but my call would have to stay on Europa just because it seems much more likely that there really is water under there, even though Callisto and Ganymede mayhave more water under their crusts than Europa.

Non-current life from space has already been discovered in the form of fossilized bacteria iirc. There was some in a very old meteorite that was discovered in Antarctica... i'm to lazy to try and look it up online to back that up though, so don't take my word for it if you don't want to.

I wouldn't doubt that Mars had life on it at some point in the past. If it is still there it's in hiding (and for good reason).

I think the meteorite in question was from mars....still bebated in scientific circles as to whether it shows signs of ancient life or not.
