It is the fourth largest moon of Jupiter, and the sixth largest moon in the solar system, being slightly smaller than Earth's moon. Europa, along with three other moons of Jupiter, Io, Ganymede, and Callisto, was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei, and has been studied by humans using telescopes and space probes since the 20th century.

    Potential of Life on Europa It is without a doubt that the most fascinating thing about space is the possibility of life elsewhere beside Earth. It is estimated that the Milky Way Galaxy itself contains about 300 billion stars. Each star contains planets and some planets might even have moons. With these findings, the question is no longer whether life exists elsewhere. The probability that Earth is the only place where life exists in the universe is far too slim. NASA has identified many planets

    habitable. While the surface of Europa may contain clues about the composition of an interior ocean, debate still continues about the surface’s chemistry and how exogenous radiation processing and endogenous oceanic emplacement play a role on this moon. One way of understanding Europa is determining if the external composition reflects the internal ocean chemistry. Results from the NIMS (Near Infrared Mapping Spectrograph) instrument on Galileo inferred that the surface of Europa was dominated by hydrated

    Europa was discovered alongside the other Jovian moons of Jupiter (Io, Ganymede, Callisto) by Galileo Galilei on January 8th, 1610. It is the Sixth closest moon to planet Jupiter and sixth largest moon in the Solar System. It takes Europa roughly every 3.5days to orbit Jupiter and spins just once per orbit which is why it shows the same face to Jupiter all the time (similar to Earth’s moon). It is also roughly the size of earth’s moon with water ice on its surface.1 Since the orbit of Europa is eccentric
