    Europa, Jupiter's fourth largest moon, is one of the most likely places in the Solar System to host life outside of Earth, due to the ocean made of water that is expected to lie under the icy shell. Despite its distance from the sun, the water remains liquid due to the tidal forces the moon experiences, where the constant push and pull of Jupiter's gravity helps to heat it.

    A growing body of evidence suggests that there is a vast liquid ocean lurking underneath Europa's solid surface, and a lot of scientists are eager to tap this watery interior in search of life. As Michael Shara — curator of the astrophysics division at the American Museum of Natural History — told us: "If we can figure out a way of putting a probe through the ice… who knows what we could find [in the subsurface oceans of Europa]. It would be fascinating to go look, and I think we have no choi...

    Europa - moon of Jupiter - Europa's trailing hemisphere in approximate natural color. The prominent crater in the lower right is Pwyll and the darker regions are areas where Europa's primarily water ice surface has a higher mineral content. Imaged on 7 September 1996 by Galileo spacecraft. Europa Listeni/jʊˈroʊpə/(Jupiter II), is the sixth-closest moon of the planet Jupiter, and the smallest of its four Galilean satellites, but still the sixth-largest moon in the Solar System. Europa was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei.

    *** Europa, moon of Jupiter - Outer Space | Wow

  • Willian Lombardi

    Europa é a 6ª maior lua (Júpiter) do Sistema Solar com diâmetro de 3128 km, é única por si própria, apresenta-se com uma superfície gelada muito brilhante com riscos coloridos, que advém de rachaduras em sua crosta de gelo. Pensa-se que seja um mundo oceânico coberto por uma capa de gelo que protege o mar interior da adversidade do Espaço. Devido às condições existentes em seu interior, alguns cientistas julgam que lá poderá existir vida, tal como a que existe nas profundezas dos mares da Terra.

    Jupiters moon... Europa. Scientists believe there could be a liquid ocean of water underneath the icy core (also made up of water)

MOONS- Earth's moon is absolutely beautiful and pictures of others are amazing I hope that one day we will Be able to view the rest of the Universe.

The surface area of Saturn's moon Mimas is slightly less than the land area of Spain and is composed of water ice with only a small amount of rock. Yet Saturn's resonances with Mimas, and Mimas' resonances with other orbiting satellites are instrumental in the formation of Saturn's rings.
