Sometimes ocean dynamics are a drag.
Decades of research have illuminated how Io and Europa shape—and are shaped by—Jupiter’s giant magnetosphere.
This month we look around our solar system—and much farther—as we celebrate AGU’s Centennial.
Hubble Space Telescope observations suggest that sodium chloride exists in young, geologically active regions on Europa, likely fed by upwelling from the moon’s subsurface ocean.
Conditions are right for “penitentes” up to 15 meters high to form on the Jovian moon, new research shows. The spires might prevent a lander from exploring Europa’s equatorial region.
Europa’s churning ice crust could reveal signs of ocean life, new study suggests.
Irradiation-induced color changes in sodium chloride could reveal whether it came from ocean water mixing with surface water, a key component of the moon’s potential to support life.
The first such map of the icy moon puts its strange surface features into perspective.
A team of scientists laid out extensive details about a hypothetical future landing mission to find life on Jupiter's moon.
Researchers used a modified version of a technique for discovering exoplanets to view Jupiter's icy moon in a new light.
