Jupiter’s moon Europa could sustain life in ocean, according to scientists

Lead researcher Dr Mohit Melwani Daswani, a geochemist and planetary scientist at JPL, said: “In other words, its composition became more like oceans on Earth.

“We believe that this ocean could be quite habitable for life.

“NASA’s Europa Clipper mission will launch in the next few years, and so our work aims to prepare for the mission, which will investigate Europa’s habitability.

“Our models lead us to think that the oceans in other moons, such as Europa’s neighbour Ganymede, and Saturn’s moon Titan, may also have formed by similar processes.”
