Extraterrestrial Life on Europa
Does this Galilean Moon of Jupiter Harbor Simple Alien Creatures?


Dec 23, 2007 Paul A. Heckert


Europa's Icy Crust - NASA/JPL
Beneath an icy crust, Jupiter's moon Europa may have extensive oceans of water that rival Earth's. Did life develop there?

Europa
Europa is the second of Jupiter's four Galilean moons. It is a ball of icy and rocky materials about the size of Earth's moon. There may also be a small metallic core. The more dense rocky materials sank to the core, leaving the icy materials to dominate the crust and mantle.

Tidal heating from Jupiter warms Europa's interior. Hence beneath the frozen crust lies Europa's mantle containing an ocean of liquid water. Galileo spacecraft images of Europa's icy surface show large structures similar to pack-ice on Earth. The pack-ice is found above frozen seas on Earth, so it indicates that there is liquid water beneath Europa's frozen crust.

Water and Extraterrestrial Life
All the life forms we know on Earth require water for life. The bodies of living creatures contain a large percentage of water in their compositions. Most life forms on Earth will die quickly without water. Life on Earth may well have originated in Earth's oceans.

The most simple (and youngest) creatures/people/race/population in the universe is the people here on Gaia/Earth, the youngest and smallest inhabited planet in the universe.

So VY canis majoris is pretty big.

My build thread

Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

yes vy canis majoris is big, it would essentially fill our solar system to jupiters orbit.

hard to fathom an object that large exists. yet on the cosmic scale of things it still is quite tiny, being dwarfed by the truly massive structures of the universe.

and although earth is currently the only known place to be inhabited that doesn't mean that places larger or smaller could have life smaller or larger and less or more complex. blanket statements don't usually work when you start to factor in the whole scale of the universe and should some veins of physics be correct the multi-verse and omni-verse.
