Europe is one of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, revolving at a fairly close to the planet giant orbit. Scientists have for a long time arguing about the existence of any alien life under a thick layer of ice that small moon, as comprehensive observations with telescopes and the passing of the satellite spacecraft showed that under the surface of Europa may be hiding a global ocean, ice-free due to the gravitational influence of its massive neighbor in the Solar system. However, if follow-up missions will actually be able to detect life in Europa’s ocean, which it may be?
What might be life on Europa?
Monica Grady, rector of the University of Liverpool in the UK, I’m sure that Jupiter’s moon Europa probably have advanced alien life. In this view, the specialist came after analysis of the chances of the emergence of multicellular life in different from other environments, according to the portal futurism.com. So, according to her theory, life on Europa could be even more advanced than life on Mars, where the researcher hopes to detect even the simplest bacteria. Due to the presence in Europe of the ocean warm the ice, the conditions of life on Jupiter may well be more comfortable compared to Mars that can provide better survival of different species of bacteria. In addition, access to organics, rising from the bowels of the satellite can have a huge impact on evolutionary processes taking place inside the distant moon. If so, the future of the earth colonists on arrival may expect to meet with much higher forms of life than could be expected earlier. So, the mind of some hypothetical inhabitants of Europe may be, for example, the level of squid or octopus.
Grady believes that these creatures can quite comfortably live in the oceans under a hard shell of ice up to a thickness of 25 kilometers not even knowing about what is happening on the surface are extremely cold the moons of Jupiter. However, the expert emphasizes that it is unlikely that this human form of life to appear in the vicinity of Jupiter: the lack of light in kilometers of the ocean depths, coupled with the enormous pressure of the ice thickness is unlikely to make the dwelling humanoids for Europe travelers.
