As the Jovian moon Europa has a magnetic field, it is thought that it has a salty, liquid, 100Km deep water ocean (under a layer of ice) and a metallic iron core. Scientists are considering the possibility that this water ocean may contain some form of life. They are already conceptually designing and even engineering technology that would be able to pass through the ice and explore those theorized depths.
