EUROPA

 

Europa  is the sixth of Jupiter's known satellites and the fourth largest; it is the second of the Galilean moons. The images of Europa's surface strongly resemble images of sea ice on Earth. It is possible that beneath Europa's surface ice there is a layer of liquid water, perhaps as much as 50 km deep, kept liquid by tidally generated heat. If so, it would be the only place in the solar system besides Earth where liquid water exists in significant quantities.
