Europa has been the contender for probable extraterrestrial life within the solar system as it might contain the whole range of requisite ingredients. Scientists have speculated that moon and Jupiter might be having large gallons of water under its surface, though haven’t ascertained about the same.

As per the recent study published in the Nature Astronomy journal, scientists of NASA, for the first time, found out water vapour over the tiniest Galilean moon called Europa. The research was based on the infrared details captured through the spectrograph at the W. M. Keck Observatory, spanning seventeen dates between the years 2016 and 2017.

Infrared signal spike

Scientists have also found a hike in the infrared signal level that could be the outcome of the contact between the water vapour and solar radiation. Water vapour comes out in the form of plumes through the splits from the underneath surface over the Europa. Water molecules radiate an infrared sparkle upon being confronted with the solar radiation that is equivalent to that of the spike figured within the infrared data. The infrared spike was an outcome of more than 2k tons of water in the plume, which is as much as the ‘volume of an Olympic swimming pool.’

Europa has been the prime contender to be in search of extraterrestrial life. Earlier studies have proved that the availability of the salty oceans under the ice surface and the availability of the plumes of hydrogen and oxygen. Lorenz Roth, the co-author from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, states- “This first direct identification of water vapour on Europa is a critical confirmation of our original detections of atomic species, and it highlights the apparent sparsity of large plumes on this icy world.”

Scientists are certainly going to have more details regarding the icy moon along the Europa Clipper quest that is speculated to be launched during the middle of 2020, as well as the European Space Agency’s Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE).
