US space scientists revealed on Thursday the spacecraft NASA will send to one of Jupiter's icy moons to search for extra-terrestrial life.

The Clipper spacecraft will launch in October and head towards Europa, a moon of Jupiter that might support life. It's currently at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, kept in a super clean room where only people in special suits can enter to make sure the spacecraft doesn't carry any germs from Earth to Europa.
