    I was watching a video on the JIMO mission to Jupiter's moons: Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. What is the approximate chance of life for these moons?

    And what about Titan, and Enceladus (misspelled?), can they be ruled out?

    What is the likelihood for water on these moons? If there is water, can we live (as humans) on the moons?

    Finally, do we have the technology to do these missions?

    sorry if I am asking stupid questions, I am only 15

    I'm not qualified to answer your questions, but I am qualified to tell you that your questions are not stupid at all.
