  • The planet EUROPA has a MASSIVE amount of water

    The planet EUROPA has a MASSIVE amount of water

    If this is actually true, it's very big news indeed.... under the layers of ice on the planet EUROPA, there is water! Massive amounts of water!

    Why the interest? Thinking of being the first sea captain on another world?

      That made me try Wiki about Jupiter's moon Europa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Europa_%28moon%29 It has a lot of fascinating information there. Apparently they are planning for a probe in 2020, after many previous plans have come to nought.

        First Captain of an "European" cruise ship....?

        With that much ice covering the water, I must be careful when choosing the name.... Titanic wouldn't be a good name for a cruise ship on that planet.

          Yep, I think you would have to settle for an ice breaker instead of your average cruise ship.
          Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

              These seven planets might be able to harbor life:

                Now if we can get some consistent political direction and a steady budget we can go out there and explore. There is still the radiation and vision problems for humans but hopefully a solution will eventually be figured out.

                  I wonder what these new "livable" planets will do to the real-estate market here on earth?

                      When they speak of water, do they mean water as we know it, I wonder, i.e. H2O, or just some kind of clear fluid?

                        As far as I can see from the article - water as we know it, in "semi-frozen" state.

                        When looking at all the things we have "discovered" in space the past 10-15 years, I'm actually quite amazed that we are so eager to denounce things we apparently still don't understand fully.

                        During the last year or so, I have spent many hours flying across the world back and forth, and within the country, and on my iPAD I have been spending time watching downloaded episodes of Morgan Freeman's different TV-series about space.... I find them utterly well made, and I'm always taken back about the things they discuss and debate in his programs.

                          I'm not with you, J.O. What are you thinking of particularly when you say that? I agree in general terms, people can be too quick to denounce before they have fully explored the matter, but something has set you off on that line of thought, I think.
