Researchers Expect for Presence of Life on Europa

Europa is moon of Jupiter, which is amongst a few planetary bodies in our solar system that supports existence of life. The new research states that sub-surface ocean of Europa lays deep currents and circulation patterns, which leads to formation of heat.

Researchers said their new research gave us the evidence of the existence of biological life on that planet. This research has been published in the journal Nature Geosciences by researchers from the University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geographics, the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Researchers called this formation of ocean currents beneath the surface of oceans as 'Chaos Terrains'. It has been found that presence of disrupted surface ice in the equatorial region of the moons could have formed by moon's ice shell and accelerated by heat from its subsurface ocean.

Researchers used the numerical model of the Europa's ocean circulation to account for the presence of the chaos terrains and other geologic features on its surface. Krista Soderlund compared the processes taking place on the surface of Europa with those on the Earth's surface.

Britney Schmidt, Assistant Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said: "That means more evidence that the ocean is there, that it's active, and there are interesting interactions between the ocean and ice shell".
