Jupiter's moon Europa glows in the dark, scientists say.
Plumes of water vapor that may be venting into space from Jupiter's moon Europa could come from the icy crust, according to new research. Scientists have considered the plumes a promising way to investigate the habitability of the icy moon.
Jupiter’s Ice-Crusted Moon Europa Can Glow In Dark On Its Own, Suggests NASA
Jupiter’s icy moon Europa glows in the dark and could literally shed light on the chemical composition of its vast oceans, and the possibility of supporting life
Jupiter's icy moon Europa found to 'glow in the dark' on its far side
Jupiter's Moon Europa GLOWS IN THE DARK - and NASA says it could lead us to aliens
🌚☢️ As Europa orbits Jupiter, it withstands relentless pummeling of radiation. But as the particles pound the icy ocean-filled moon's surface night after night, day after day, they may also be doing something otherworldly: making Europa glow in the dark:
Even in chaos, there is beauty. Dubbed the “chaos terrain”, the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa features a widely varied landscape. To understand how it might have formed, scientists study blocks of land as if they are jumbled puzzle pieces:
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:
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".
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:
