Europa’s Ocean Ascending Europa

This animation demonstrates how deformation in the icy surface of Europa could transport subsurface ocean water to the moon’s surface.

This is just one of several simulated behaviors reported in a new study performed by scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The study focused on linear features called “bands” and “groove lanes” found on Jupiter’s moons Europa and Ganymede. Scientists have used the same numerical model to solve mysteries about motion in Earth’s crust.

Scientists believe there is an ocean hidden beneath the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa.

NASA-JPL astrobiologist Kevin Hand explains why scientists are so excited about the potential of this ice-covered world to answer one of humanity's most profound questions.

The pressure at Europa's sea floor will be much lower than said in the video due to gravity. More like 2500-1200 bars which is still worse than on Mariana Trench, but good enough for extremophile organisms (Meaning some Tardigrades could survive there for a short time)

Europa, moon of Jupiter and one of the most promising worlds for alien life due to it's ocean that lies beneath the ice crust. So then than on Mariana Trench but good enough for extremophilewhat would sending a submarine down that ocean be like?
