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

Europa is a remarkable moon because it may be comprised of mostly liquid water under a layer of ice. Europa is one of the moons of Jupiter.

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.

The question may mean "Was the moon Europa named by Galileo?" The answer to that is NO. Galileo discovered this moon, but it was named by another astronomer, called Simon Marius.

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.

The moon of Jupiter known as Europa may be liquid water under a thick layer of ice. Europa was discovered by Galileo.

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

Europa is a moon of Jupiter. It is unique in that is has an extensive crust of ice, leading astronomers to believe that it may harbour an extensive ocean below it's surface.

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

A saline ocean beneath it's crust.

"May" is a very open statement. Our best guess is:-Earth - ObviouslyMars.Europa - Moon of Jupiter.Titan - Moon of SaturnEnceladus - Moon of Saturn

Jupiters moon, Europa, is special as it is thought to have a huge layer of water under its crust. This water may be able to support simple life forms if the conditions are right.

It is thought that Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter, may have liquid water beneath a frozen surface.

i think the moon is called the twilight saga

Europa is a large moon of Jupiter. Its surface is made of ice, which may have an ocean of water beneath it. Europa's diameter is 1,940 miles or 3,122 kilometers, slightly smaller than Earth's moon. Europa takes 3.55 days to orbit Jupiter at a distance of 416,900 miles or 670,900 kilometers. The Italian astronomer Galileo discovered Europa in 1610. Much of what is known about it comes from data gathered by a space probe, also named Galileo, that orbited Jupiter from 1995 to 2003.

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.

Well, There are may moons (i think 29) But the 4 Galilean moons are Io, Ganymede, Europa, and Castillo. :)

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.

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.

thats to say that it might be able to harbour simple life forms, if it were to have a liquid ocean beneth its icy crust - as scientists suspect it may have.

There is evidence that Jupiter's moon Europa may have a slushy ice layer below the hard ice layer, but we don't know this to be 100% accurate!Hope it helped.

Apart from Earth, there are no other "known" planets with an ocean. However, there is a good chance than a moon of Jupiter - Europa may have an ocean under it's crust, and Titan - a moon of Saturn - HAS an ocean of ... methane.
