NASA Reveals 'Surprising' Activity on Jupiter's Moon Europa

2016-09-26 21:07:33

Jupiter's moon Europa might be making it rain with water vapor plumes erupting off its surface. NASA revealed the "surprising activity" today and said the observations came from the Hubble Space Telescope. The discovery of possible water jets spraying from the moon's surface is particularly exciting for scientists.

Instead of drilling into miles of ice to sample the ocean, the jets would make it easier for a future mission to sample Europa's ocean, Geoff Yoder, acting associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate said in a statement.
"Europa's ocean is considered to be one of the most promising places that could potentially harbor life in the solar system," Yoder said. "These plumes, if they do indeed exist, may provide another way to sample Europa's subsurface."
The water jets are estimated to spray as high as 125 miles, according to NASA. Europa is home to a massive ocean that NASA says holds twice as much water as all of the oceans on Earth.
