Jupiter’s Moon Europa May Spew Water Jets Into Space: NASA

Scientists have discovered further evidence that Europa, the icy moon of Jupiter, shoots jets of water into space. Researchers used the Hubble telescope to first observe the plumes in 2013, but a follow-up sighting announced by NASA on Monday raises the possibility of testing material ejected from Europa for elements required for life. Europa, which is roughly the size of Earth’s moon, has a huge subsurface ocean of liquid water.
