NASA has spotted possible water plumes erupting on Jupiter's moon Europa

New research from the Hubble Space Telescope has revealed possible water plumes erupting Jupiter's moon Europa. The new Hubble images revealed "finger-like projections" coming from Europa. Researchers think the fingers are 125-mile-long plumes of water erupting from the moon's subsurface ocean: Possible plumes on Europa Source: NASA, ESA, W. Sparks (left image) L.
