Laboratory test on ice compression has revealed that Jupiter's icy moon's crust could generate a surprising amount of heat, opening a new window into understanding the moon's potentially life-giving ocean.
An inside look at the dust-analyzing instrument that will fly on NASA's upcoming mission to the ocean-harboring Jupiter moon.
Our solar system has some prime locations (besides Earth) for alien life.
The big moons of Jupiter may have oceans underground. Although they are driven by the same mechanism, their nature can be radically different.
NASA is exploring the idea of putting a lander on Europa to look for signs of life.
What tiny satellites could take a ride over to Europa? Here are five feasibility studies being considered to hitchhike on a NASA mission.
Europa is an ice-covered moon orbiting Jupiter that likely an ocean underneath. Perhaps that ocean contains life. Perhaps it doesn't. But we're not going to know for sure until we send a probe there to check things out.
NASA on Tuesday selected nine science instruments it believes will best address the burning question about whether Jupiter’s ocean-bearing moon Europa has indications of life.
