Hoping for Europa
Topic: Europa
11/27/08
NASA and ESA are now deciding on the next major mission to the outer solar system. One proposal is to visit two of Jupiter´s large moons, Ganymede and Europa. Astrobiologists have long hoped to study Europa more closely because its global ocean could harbor alien life.

Mini-Sub for Small Spaces
Topic: Europa
09/11/08
New from the Nordic issue of Astrobiology Magazine, European Edition is a story about a tiny submarine. Swedish researchers are developing a remote-controlled submersible that can fit through drilled holes in thick ice caps.

Swimming a Salty Sea
Topic: Europa
11/19/07
If there is life on Jupiter´s moon Europa, what would it be like? The answer partly depends on the type of ocean water that is under the moon's icy outer shell.

Europa: Frozen Ocean in Motion
Topic: Europa
11/26/03
Few places in our solar system can offer more intriguing conditions for primitive life than Jupiter's moon Europa. Covered by a vast ice-sheet, Europa cloaks its subterranean ocean but evidence of a briny, electrically-conductive sea may provide at least two of the conditions needed for life: liquid water and an energy source.

Europa and Undersea Divers
Topic: Europa
11/18/03
From working on Europa research to diving the Atlantic for vent microbes, the SETI Institute's Kevin Hand is getting out there. His handiwork recently was contributed to the exploration voyage of James Cameron, while the Academy Award director hunted for extreme lifeforms.

High Tide on Europa
Topic: Europa
09/23/03
Cynthia Phillips, an expert on Europa image analysis from SETI Institute, discusses the remarkable way that the Galilean satellites-get their warmth. The moons are heated by eccentric orbits. Called tidal heating, this source of energy has interesting implications for whether liquid water could exist so far from the sun.

Fascination with Distant Worlds
Topic: Europa
08/12/03
On September 21, the Galileo space probe will dive into the atmosphere of Jupiter. Its trek to the giant planet has revealed stunning images of the Jovian moons, in particular one of its frozen satellites, Europa. Cynthia Phillips of The SETI Institute provides an account of what further studies might reveal.

Evidence of bacteria on Europa?
Topic: Europa
01/01/03
Jupiter's moon Europa is thought to be one of the most likely abodes for microscopic life in our solar system. The ice-covered world may have liquid water, energy, and organic compounds - all three of the ingredients necessary for life to survive.

Europa: Chewy or Crunchy?
Topic: Europa
12/23/02
For geophysicist William B. Moore, the question of whether life exists on Jupiter's moon Europa boils down to whether the moon's center is chewy or crunchy.
