Previous Episode

New findings have increased the likelihood that there is a vast ocean lying under the surface of Europa. Jupiter’s moon is emerging as one of the most likely places in our solar system to find life. Why do we think Europa is such a good bet for extra-terrestrial life? What would might that life look-like? And how soon will we be able to confirm this?

    we have the technology + the resources! All the space agencies i.e. NASA, ESA, SpaceX, ISA and iSpace should team up and quickly launch several rockets with probes and rovers bound for the jovian moons to uncover their secrets once and for all.. it should have been done 2 decades ago! Humanity needs to stop wasting time and cross the moons off our bucket list already! Planning and planning and planning.. just get it over with guys!

    I don't think water is that important to life to exist and evolve. Change my mind.

    A guess about Europa's ocean… – STERILE. Do I want to see anything else? – of course. But not likely. – We will find 1) – The ocean is much much smaller than we thought… and 2) – nothing is there.

    Why is it that we have not sent an orbiting satellite to completely map the entire planet?

    This idea is really is a religion. Its amazing how a lethal environment brings life Not nurtured environment that we have seen in our surrounding in environment in which we live in. Interesting how this evolution religion try's to explain life and it completely backwards on what we know that support life.

    might be just every action in the universe is conscious…. but if you're not looking with the right eyes you don't know where the system of that consciousness begins and ends. In other words we're experiencing the universe rather than a free part of it.

    But why does it take so long to send a probe to Europa, if they already know for decades that there possibly is a liquid ocean?

    If Europa has been around since the dawn of our planet with geysers and an ocean, then it should be possible for life to exist

    Having water is not enough for life. There is no reason why the conditions on earth to start life temperate conditions, stagnant water and oxygen are an exception but absolutely necessary, even if there are creatures that don't require oxygen to exist on earth
