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.

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.

no it does not. But some of jupiters moons do.

neither. Europa is not a planet, but one of Jupiters moons.

It is one of Jupiters moons, the sixth closest and the smallest of jupiters four main moons.

Ganymede, Callisto, Europa, and Io.

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

Jupiters four biggest moons, Calisto, Lo, Ganymede and Europa were discovered by Gallileo

The tectonic plate-like movement of its icy surface and various measurements indicate that Europa has a subsurface ocean of liquid water. Liquid water is considered the most important factor for a world's ability to have life.

Its Calisto,Ganymede,Europa, and Io

It was sent into Jupiters atmosphere due to the possibility of an ocean beneath the icy crust of jupiters moon europa. Galileo could potentially be carrying bacteria that could be harmful to europa, so was destroyed to protect it.

Europa is the sixth moon of the planet Jupiter.

Jupiters 4 moons are called Ganymede,Io,Callisto,and Europa.

it is far 580 miles away from jupiter

4.56 billion years old, but it's surface is younger.

Europa has ice on it and it is hypothesized that there is an ocean of water below the ice.Some have suggested that there is life on Europa. The Europa Jupiter System Mission (EJSM) has been proposed to investigate this and other aspects in a 2020 launch.

Europa is one of Jupiters moons. Jupiter has many moons, but Europa is one of the four large moons that was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei (and possibly independently by Simon Marius around the same time).

Europa - WaterIO - Most volcanically active body in the Solar System

Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto. Are the main moons of Jupiter, that are called Jupiter's daughters.

i believe that it is Io, Europa, Ganymede then Callisto. This is in order of brightness seen from Jupiter's surface.
