Europa Jupiters Icy Moon

  1. 1. By Charlie Carissimo EUROPA Jupiters Icy Moon
  2. 2. IT IS INCREDIBLE TO THINK…
  3. 3. … THAT THERE MIGHT BE WATER IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM BEYOND EARTH
  4. 4. AND THEREFORE THE POSSIBILITY OF LIFE
  5. 5. LET’S GO MORE IN DEPTH:
  6. 6. EUROPA, JUPITERS ICY MOON
  7. 7. EUROPA IS ONE OF JUPITER’S MANY MOONS
  8. 8. IT IS SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN EARTH’S MOON
  9. 9. EUROPA’S SURFACE IS ONE OF THE SMOOTHEST AND BRIGHTEST IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM
  10. 10. THERE ARE VERY FEW CRATERS ON EUROPA
  11. 11. ITS SURFACE IS MADE UP OF…
  12. 13. AND IS ALSO STRIATED BY CRACKS AND STREAKS
  13. 14. THESE CRACKS AND STREAKS ARE CALLED LINEAE
  14. 15. LINEAE
  15. 16. THEY ARE PROBABLY CAUSED BY ERUPTIONS OF WARM ICE…
  16. 17. AS THE CRUST TRIED TO SPREAD TO EXPOSE WARMER LAYERS
  17. 18. BUT THE INTERESTING PART IS WHAT’S UNDERNEATH THE CRUST…
  18. 19. UNDER ITS ICY SURFACE SCIENTISTS HAVE HYPOTHESISED THAT THERE IS EITHER…
  19. 20. A LIQUID OCEAN, WHICH WOULD BE THE BIGGEST IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM
  20. 22. OR WARM CONVECTING ICE
  21. 25. IF THIS WERE TRUE THERE COULD BE LIFE IN ENVIRONMENTS SIMILAR TO THOSE NEAR EARTH’S HYDROTHERMAL VENTS
  22. 27. THE LIFE WOULD BE VERY PRIMITIVE, LIKE MICROBES
  23. 29. IT’S SOMEHOW EVEN HARDER TO IMMAGINE THAT THERE IS LIFE ON A MOON
  24. 30. THAN TO IMMAGINE LIFE ON ANOTHER PLANET
  25. 31. BUT IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE
