Is There Alien Life On Europa, NASA To Present New Findings About Jupiter’s Moon

Is There Alien Life On Europa, NASA To Present New Findings About Jupiter’s Moon :- On 21st September, the U.S. space agency – NASA announced that it will present new findings about icy moon of Jupiter based on images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

NASA has long labeled Europa, one of Jupiter’s 67 known moons, as one of the most likely places to host alien life in the Solar System so speculations about scientists finally revealing they have found signs of life on the moon are not at all surprising.

However, NASA dissipated this excitement before it can get out of hand. Some believe that the agency is already on its way to making a full disclosure about the existence of alien life.

NASA has made it clear that it has not discovered aliens on Europa till now.

The announcement of NASA may be about the water vapor plumes that the Hubble space telescope first spotted years ago but have not been seen again.

The Hubble detected the plumes of water vapor in December 2012. The plumes of water vapor extended about 120 miles from south pole of Europa into space. The plumes caused excitement when its discovery was made public because this could mean a robotic probe can sample the suspected Europa ocean without the need to land on the surface of the moon.

If the existence of the plumes of water vapor is confirmed, it could make it easier for scientists to investigate the habitable potentials of the moon. The NASA’s scientists only need to analyze the chemical content of these plumes.

The researchers have found additional evidence earlier this year that the moon can host alien life. Europa is believed to hold between two and three times the amount of water in the Earth’s oceans.
