NASA is trying to find alien life in a hidden ocean beneath the floor of Jupiter’s moon.
Scientists hope that the frozen physique of water may maintain the important thing to discovering further terrestrial life.

The research – led by NASA scientist Tom Nordheim – delves into how deeply radiation from Jupiter may push by way of the floor.
It is thought that radation could solely hve performed lower than 1cm into the floor within the mildest areas, which implies there’s nonetheless loads of the ocean that would home life.
In a weblog submit, co-author Chris Paranicas mentioned: ”That is the primary prediction of radiation ranges at every level on Europa’s floor and is necessary info for future Europe missions.”
