Constitution of Europe
Maybe life elsewhere
Why I'm talking about this
What is Europe ?
Europa, or Jupiter II, is a natural satellite of Jupiter. More specifically, it is the smallest Galilean moon and the sixth closest moon to the planet among Jupiter's 92 known, with a semi-major axis of 671,100 km and a period of revolution of about 85 hours. It is the sixth largest moon in the Solar System with a diameter of 3,122 km.
Europa is slightly smaller than the Moon: its average radius is 1,560.8 km — about 10% smaller than that of the Moon — and its mass of 4.8 ×,1022 kg — about 34% smaller than that of the Moon.
The scientific consensus is that Europa has an outer layer of water about a hundred kilometers thick — the exact dimensions of the internal structures are unknown — composed of a frozen part as a crust and then a liquid part under the ice as a subglacial ocean.
But recently the mission has changed, the goal is no longer to simply fly over Europa but to land there and launch a probe that will aim to pierce the ice sheet and then film what is in its potential ocean.The mission is therefore planned for 2036
The Europa Clipper mission will be launched in October 2024 with a Falcon Heavy rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The contract is valued at $178 million (€151 million). The mission was previously scheduled to rely on NASA's Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, which has experienced delays and cost overruns.
NASA announced Friday, July 23, that it has chosen SpaceX for its planned trip to Europa, Jupiter's icy moon, a major victory for billionaire Elon Musk's company that aims to venture even further into the solar system.
Why im talking
Maybe Alien ???
With its high concentration of oxygen, liquid water ocean and temperature-warming underwater volcano, Europa is a very serious candidate for the shelter of complex life.
