The US group sent out a cryptic message, stating that there is “surprising activity” on Europa – the most well known of Jupiter’s 67 moons.

NASA has been analysing data from its Hubble Space Telescope which is currently prowling the universe.

The space experts said in a statement announcing the event on Monday, to be broadcast live at 7PM UK time: “Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa.”

Most scientists agree that where there is water, it massively increases the chances of finding life.

Europa has long been touted as a possible host of life elsewhere in the Solar System, and even boffins working on the Juno Probe, which is currently in orbit around Jupiter, believe that it could be a likely habitable zone for some lifeforms.

When asked why Juno has to be intentionally destroyed at the end of the mission, Juno project scientist Steve Levin said that they don’t want to contaminate any potential life in that are.

He added: “We think Jupiter’s icy moon Europa has a subsurface ocean of liquid water; and because everywhere on Earth that we’ve found water, we’ve also found life, this is a good place for us to search.”

However, many are not convinced and believe the announcement will relate solely to the discovery of water on Europa.

NASA called a similar emergency press conference when they announced the discovery of flowing water on Mars.

It was only last year that Alfred McEwen, professor of planetary geology at the University of Arizona, and his team found evidence of water on Mars, and even found that water was still flowing on the surface.

Since then, efforts to find life on the Red Planet have been upped.

excited?

we found something that maybe something which means there maybe life somehow out of this something and we are not alone ok? dig?

  1. Reblogged this on World Peace Forum.

  2. Scientific logic – there is lots of water on earth and lots of life – so this water must have made this life – they are still stuck on Darwin’s muddy sea pool theory even though not one single scientist in 200 years has produced life from water and chemicals.

  3. Amazing…they won’t announce we have a bloody New solar system in our own that’s about to wipe us out but they gonna spin more bullshit to distract us lol. Watch out because I think this is a lead up to the fake Alien invasion they gonna try and pull off.

    More evidence of possible water plumes erupting from the surface of Jupiter’s icy moon Europa has been spotted using NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, the US space agency has announced.

  5. oh really?
