The Potential of Alien Life within Jupiter’s Moon Europa
For more than 20 years, astrobiologists have been gazing upon Jupiter’s moon Europa as a potential hot zone for alien life. NASA’s Hubble space telescope first observed some water vapor above the icy south polar region of the Galilean moon in late 2012. Many scientists believes that the plumes erupting off from the salty ocean beneath the glacial crust. And we all know that water is one important prerequisite for life. Currently, NASA is planning to send a flyby mission named Europa Clipper, that would probably launch in 2020s, and soon a lander mission to investigate this celestial body.
