NASA's new findings on oceanic world, life beyond Earth

Additionally, the Hubble Space Telescope showed a water plume erupting on the warmest part of the surface of Europa , one of Jupiter's moons with an icy crust over a salty liquid water ocean containing twice as much water as Earth's seas. Last October, Cassini scientists did their penultimate flyby of the little moon with the specific goal of finding this hydrogen. On Earth, most ocean vents don't produce that much hydrogen, though experts think they were much more common in our planet's ... Read More
