It may have oceans of liquid water under its layers of water ice. Scientists want to know if these oceans (assuming they are there) contain any forms of life.

The scientists think that Europa can have the life on it.


I have read somewhere that scientists think that europa may have an underground ocean.


Europa may have lots of things that scientists may not know and it may have a rocky surface to.


Scientists think there may be liquid water on Europa that we could live off of.


Many scientists believe that Europa may hold water, or at least ice which could mean there is a possibility of life on one of Jupiter's moons.


Europa is covered with ice and underneath a layer of ice there is an ocean that scientists think might have life living in it. Also Europa has many cracks on it.


They think that life might exist on Europa because they have found evidence of liquid water on Europa. Hope this helps. :) <3


A saline ocean beneath it's crust.


Europa shows signs of having a saline environment, which could be amenable to life.


Europa is the fourth largest moon of Jupiter. Scientists think that life may exist on Europa because there is evidence that liquid water may exist beneath its icy surface. Europa is pushed and pulled by the high gravity of Jupiter as well as by the gravity of Jupiter's other moons. This makes Europa expand and contract and causes it to heat up and this heat may cause some of Euorpa's icy crust to melt under the surface. So, there may be lakes and oceans of liquid water on Europa. Water is a major requirement for life. If there is liquid water on Europa, there may be life.


Europa probably contains a metallic iron core. Little information about its deep internal structure is known, but this is what scientists think.


Scientists accept that Europa may have life because it has liquid water on it.


Because there are materials in Europa which Earth also contain. A example of this is H2o (Water)


On Europa, one of the moons around Jupiter, water has been found! However chances are small that there may be life, since much of that water is in an icy frozen state.


Scientists believe that there is liquid water, under the crust of Europa.


A saline ocean beneath it's crust.


As the Jovian moon Europa has a magnetic field, it is thought that it has a salty, liquid, 100Km deep water ocean (under a layer of ice) and a metallic iron core. Scientists are considering the possibility that this water ocean may contain some form of life. They are already conceptually designing and even engineering technology that would be able to pass through the ice and explore those theorized depths.


Scientists think that Europa ,one of the satellites of Jupiter must have life in it as it is believed that the satellite is purely covered by thick sheet of ice, which is the solid state of water .it is also believed that the satellite also answers the Urey- Miller Hypothesis


liquid water, under its icy crust.


Europa is the sixth moon of the planet Jupiter.


This is @kanimalo correcting the answer... its actually D) water ocean and tidal energy



The movement of Europa's icy crust indicates that there is liquid water beneath its icy crust. Water is the first thing scientists look for in trying to find places that may hold life.


Of these four choices, out current understanding of Europa (and remember, everything is subject to change in the light of more recent discoveries) indicates that Europa may have large liquid oceans under a layer of ice. There are interesting surface features that appear to be large ridges; these might have been formed by cracks in the icy surface, and liquid or vapor escaping to the surface - and then freezing into ridges as the cracks close.


There may be life under Europa's vast oceans. It is cold, but heat from the moon's core and Jupiter's magnetic field may make it habitable for organisms under the ice.
