By Amanda Hendrix in Planetary Science  The field of ocean worlds has exploded in recent years, with the Galileomission’s detections of subsurface oceans at Jovian moons Europa, Ganymede and Callisto in the 1990s and the Cassini mission’s more recent discoveries of subsurface oceans at Enceladus...
Morgan Saletta, University of Melbourne and Kevin Orrman-Rossiter, University of Melbourne Last month NASA gave the “all systems go” for a new mission to Europa. But why go back? After all, we’re still sifting through the data from the Galileo...
Chris Arridge, Lancaster University One of the most profound and exciting breakthroughs in planetary science in the last two decades has been the discovery of liquid methane lakes on the surface of Saturn’s largest moon Titan, and liquid oceans under...
Leigh Fletcher, University of Oxford The icy moon Europa is perhaps the most tantalising destination in our solar system. Scientists have been trying for years to kickstart a mission to Jupiter’s most enigmatic moon, with very Earth-like concerns over costs...
Andrew Coates, UCL Along with Mars, Jupiter’s moon Europa has long captured the imagination of science fiction writers as a potential place for life in the solar system beyond Earth. In science fact, missions have found hints of a subsurface...
Gareth Dorrian, University of Birmingham It’s brilliant news. In just over a decade, there will be two spacecraft exploring one of the most habitable worlds in the solar system – Jupiter’s moon Europa. That’s thanks to a recent announcement by...
Chris Arridge, Lancaster University Europa, a frozen moon around Jupiter, is believed to be one of the most habitable worlds in the solar system. It was first imaged in detail by the Voyager 1 probe in 1979, revealing a surface...
