In the previous novel, 2010: Odyssey Two, Jupiter was converted into a mini-sun which was dubbed "Lucifer" following the Soviet ship Leonov’s mission to Jupiter to find out what happened to the Discovery. A message was sent to Earth by Dave Bowman, through HAL:
ALL THESE WORLDS
ARE YOURS EXCEPT
This is due to Lucifer melting the frozen ocean beneath the surface of Europa, causing an atmosphere to form and leading to the discovery of alien life in Europa's ocean.

Yes, very interesting info...
I believe that Titan orbits Saturn. The moon they find life on in the movie was orbiting Jupiter and I think it was Europa.
