Beijing time on September 27th at 2 am, NASA will host a conference call, introduce some new findings on Europa in Europa, these findings from the Harbert space telescope to shoot photos. Europa is the fourth largest moons of Jupiter, the solar system is the most possible life of the planet, because possession of liquid water in the form of it under the surface of the ocean. We all know that in the earth, as long as there is water, life can be found. The NASA and spoilers ahead, not an alien, so NASA is not always want to make a big news, perhaps related to the presence of the ocean surface Ganymede two.
The four scientists who attended the meeting were:
Hertz Paul, director of the Department of astrophysics at NASA, Washington, D.
Astronomer Sparks William of the Baltimore Space Telescope Science Institute
Schmidt Britney, assistant professor of earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta
NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Harbert project senior fellow Wiseman Jennifer
In July 9, 1979, Voyager 2 shooting Europa Europa, surface with a red substance, and clearly visible lines.
NASA's close attention to the Europa is like a small life, at present it is full of vitality, the geological structure is still changing.
In January 3, 2000, the Galileo spacecraft at 351 km altitude leap Europa Europa when photographs.
Red material on its surface is a strong evidence, which shows that the interior of Europa must be experiencing the magic of change. It will be a variety of forms of life to survive the environment?
In December 2012, the Harbert space telescope in the Antarctic region of Europa Europa shot to the water vapor, Harbert did not directly captured plumes erupt through the spectral method, but the detected radiation of hydrogen and oxygen.
From the picture of Harbert told us that Europa might have erupted in many space in the water column, NASA detector is designed by Europa, if this is true, can make the detector through the water column, and then directly analyzed internal components of Europa.
Europa is the prospect of concept map, Europa, on the right is Jupiter, the middle IO io.
California Polytechnic and JPL astronomers spectrum Jupiter icy moons emitted from the surface of Europa, strong evidence that saline liquid in the sea surface from great Europa surface, means that this is a rich chemical environment, increase the possibility of life existing in Europa ocean. Europa under the surface of the ocean is considered to cover the whole planet, is located in the ice shell, 100 kilometers thick.
In addition, if it proves that Europa is pregnant with life, life will be a common phenomenon in the Milky way or beyond, and the origin of life will be more simple.
