A Portal Into Space

The Moon of Water

A NASA planetary mission has discovered large lakes just under the very rough and icy layer of Jupiter’s moon Europa. Underneath these lakes is a vast ocean of liquid water. It is very difficult to study this ocean because the icy layer is ten miles thick! These lakes have the possibility of supporting life.
