Europa Clipper Mission: investigating habitability of Europa, Jupiter’s icy

Europa is one of the four Galilean Moons of Jupiter, and it has more water
than on Earth. Europa is on the top of the list of Ocean Worlds that have
potential to harbor life. Its surface is presently estimated to be covered by
several kilometers-thick water-ice. Galileo Mission data indicates conducting
liquid water ocean beneath this ice shell. With internal heat generated due
to gravitational variations between Jupiter and Europa and radiation coming
from Jupiter’s magnetosphere to Europa, scientists think that Europa may have
the potential to harbor Life. With the task of investigating Europa’s
Habitability, the Europa Clipper Mission is gearing up with several
instruments dedicated to investigating interior, surface, and atmospheric
composition of Europa. This talk will take a close look at what we know so
far about Europa and what exciting science could be coming soon from the
Europa Clipper Mission.


This work was carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California
Institute of Technology, under a contract with the National Aeronautics and
Space Administration (NASA). Funding from NASA through HW and SSW programs is
