NASA's Galileo spacecraft has unveiled the possibility of water to Europe for scientists. The data comes from the spaceship, which was won 21 years ago in 1997.
The data shows that the icy exterior of the moon throws feather-like material into space. This disclosure leads to the possibility of an ocean below the surface. It has given the scientists hope for the search for extraterrestrial life outside the earth. NASA's Acting Director of the Planetary Science Division views the data as revealed secrets extracted from the dead satellite.
He further concludes that Europe has a great opportunity if another planetary body is able to sustain life outside the earth. The reason is sheer size, for which it is one of the four largest moons of the largest planet in the solar system. The huge size of the subsurface oceans is able to hold twice the water capacity of the earth.
Scientists also believe that the oceans must be kept warm due to the tides caused by the attraction of Jupiter. With sufficient heat and the necessary chemical structures, there is a great chance to find life, as it is in the deeper earth cores. The similar patterns of feathers spewing into space were also noted in the Saturn moon Enceladus. The ice and steam plumes were captured in 2005 by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The same phenomenon in Europe has also reinforced the belief in the possibility of life.
Until recently in 201
A thorough analysis of the Galileo data shows that the spacecraft was indeed past the surface of Europe, the magnetic field changed drastically and the plasma density also increased. One of the space physicists, along with other study authors at NASA, believes that it is proof that the spacecraft passed over a spring. From now on, future missions will be underway for the detailed exploration of materials in Europe.
