Nasa’s future missions should be focused on Jupiter’s moon, Europa.
In 1998, NASA’s Galileo flew by Europa to take data and now reports suggest that there is a salty ocean about twice of Earth’s hiding under the ice. The finding is raising hope of signs of life outside of Earth.
Exploring Europa is very important for Earth is dying, Earth’s resources are being drained by its large population, the importance of finding another planet mankind can inhabit in replacement of the dying Earth should be our number one priority. Water is the origin of life, if there is a salty 0cean beneath the layer of ice in Europa there could be living organisms as small as a bacterium. In addition, the icy depths of the moons are thought to contain vents like oceans on Earth do. These vents could provide the necessary thermal environment to help life evolve like the origin of life on Earth.
