NASA wants to utilize the power of SELFI — or the Submillimeter Enceladus Life Fundamentals Instrument — to hunt for signs of life on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. The agency just announced that they’ve received support to move forward on the development of the remote sensing submillimeter-wave or radio instrument, and once completed, they’ll use it to study the composition of water vapor and ice-spewing geysers at the south pole of Enceladus.
