This week: 👨‍🚀 👨‍🚀 Spacewalkers work on a cosmic particle detector 🚀 🌔 Partnering with companies to send payloads to the Moon 💧 A key finding on Jupiter's moon Europa These stories and more:

@NASA  scientists confirm that water vapor has been found on Europa. Could this moon be habitable in the near future? Find out more here.

Strong evidence exists that Jupiter’s moon Europa has a deep (60-100 km) liquid water ocean under its ~20 km thick icy crust. #OTD  in 1999, @NASAJPL 's Galileo spacecraft took this 12-frame image of Europa from 94,000 km away. It was the highest resolution image to date.

Astronomers have found table salt on Europa’s surface: a clue to the chemistry of the moon’s underground ocean — including its potential for hosting life.

Astronomers have uncovered increasing evidence that some bodies in our solar system, like Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus, are actually ocean worlds.

Scientists have confirmed that plumes of water vapor are breaking through the surface of Europa - pointing to the likelihood of a vast ocean beneath the moon's surface. #europa

If we discover alien life forms in the subsurface waters of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa, I wonder if we’d be compelled to call them “Europeans".

Confirmed: there's water vapor present above the icy surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. A research team led from @NASAGoddard  made the detection — which supports the idea that below the ice, Europa has an ingredient necessary for life: liquid water. More:

Are you feeling a little salty today? The yellow color visible on the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa is actually sodium chloride — table salt. The discovery suggests that Europa’s ocean may resemble Earth's oceans more than previously thought. More:
