If you're searching for life in the universe, there's honestly no better place to start than our own solar system. Our neighborhood is filled with icy moons with potential for life: Europa, Io, and Ganymede around Jupiter and Titan and Enceladus around Saturn are some of the most famous spots in our solar neighborhood that have hope for habitability. But this even applies to moons you may not have heard of. It turns out that Dione — a moon of Saturn — also may be a habitable world. Scientists recently discovered straight bright stripes on Dione, whose origins give us even more hope for life.
