Exploring Europa – Ocean Worlds of the Outer Solar System


Where is the best place to find living life beyond Earth? It may be a small, ice-covered moon of Jupiter or Saturn that harbors some of the most habitable real estate in our Solar System. Life loves liquid water and these moons have lots of it! Dr.Kevin Hand, Deputy Chief Scientist for Solar System Exploration at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory explains the science behind how these oceans exist and what we know about the conditions on these worlds. Dr. Hand focuses on Jupiter’s moon Europa, which is a top priority for future NASA missions and shows how the exploration of Earth’s ocean is helping our understanding of the potential habitability of worlds.

  1. NEVER gonna happen.. unfortunately. 🚀 🌑 NuclearPoweredProbe
    SubmersibleDrill sent 500 MILLION miles land safely then burrow MILES below E's crust then"flip" to submarine mode an send video back to Earth of microbial life…
    … when we're havin difficulty just gettin back to moon.
    NO LIFE on Europa anyway… not even microbial.
    IF SO.. It happened twice in our solar system which equates to life plentiful in Milky Way (let alone rest of observable Universe) .. which means statistically INTELLIGENT LIFE would be everywhere and visible.. as that whole "Prime Directive" nonsense would NOT be a "Universal Policy" ..i.e. at least ONE Alien with capabilities would reach out to us OR (intentionally or not) let themselves be known.
    … We just may be alone in the entire universe and it's our responsibility to seed it .. NOT hubris just a fact. This a responsibility to be held sacred above ALL else.

  2. The Appalachian mountains are actually the remains of Quetzacoatl "the feathered serpent". In fact the entire east coast is an ancient dragon. Have a nice day everyone.
