Europa: Exploring an Ocean World


Over two decades ago, NASA’s Galileo spacecraft revealed that beneath a frozen ice shell, Jupiter’s moon Europa likely harbors a deep, salty ocean of liquid water that may present a habitable environment for life. As a result, Europa has become a foremost target for Solar System exploration.

In this talk, Dr. Trumbo will discuss our current state of knowledge about Europa, recent discoveries made using Earth-based observatories, and NASA’s upcoming Europa Clipper mission to explore this potentially habitable world.
