- Dec 19, 2013NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed water vapor above the frigid south polar region of Jupiter's moon Europa, providing the first strong evidence of water plumes erupting off the moon's surface.
- Apr 14, 2013A new analysis of data from NASA's Galileo mission is helping astrobiologists identify regions on the surface of Europa covered with material churned up from inside the moon. Studying this material could yield information about Europa's subsurface ocean and it's potential as a habitat for
- Sep 25, 2012New research suggests that water near the surface of Europa does not stay in a liquid state for long. The findings could have implications in developing future missions to study life's potential on the Jovian moon.
- Mar 29, 2012Jupiter's icy moon is subject to constant and significant blasts of radiation. A new experiment attempts to determine how deep life must lay beneath the crust in order to survive. This will be important for future missions looking for life on Europa.
