Recently we wrote about the icy satellite of Jupiter — Europe and the preparation of NASA mission Europa Clipper. So, within the framework of this mission, the device will be launched, which will be equipped with a large set of tools for water analysis, presumably under the ice layer.

Another proof of the presence of water on the satellite of Jupiter was a second analysis of the data obtained in 1997 by the Galileo spacecraft (Galileo). The analysis was conducted at the University of California Los Angeles by a group of scientists led by Margaret Kivelson.

Twenty-one years ago, the Galileo (Galileo) spacecraft was at an altitude of only 150 km above the surface of Europe. And according to the indications of a magnetometer and a plasma sensor, an alternating signal was recorded. And according to the latest work of scientists, it is this signal that indicates that the spacecraft has passed through a stream of water, striking in those places, presumably at heights of up to 200 km. Additional confirmation of this hypothesis is that the signs of the presence of water jets on the surface of Europe were observed with the help of the Hubble telescope, and precisely in the same area of the surface, scientists note.

Scientists have found signs of water geysers on the satellite of Jupiter - Europe

Scientists have found signs of water geysers on the satellite of Jupiter — Europe. Apart from the Earth, in the solar system there are a number of cosmic bodies on which, presumably, life can exist in the form of microorganisms. And if on the nearest planets — Mars and Venus — scientists are less and less hoping to find traces of living beings,

Scientists have found signs of water geysers on the satellite of Jupiter — Europe, then, turning their attention to such giant satellites of planets as Europe, Ganymede and Enceladus, scientists again relished the hope of finding life within our solar system.
