Science DiscoveriesCrisscrossing Europa, one of Jupiter’s mysterious icy moons, are vast cracks and discoloured streaks that combine to create a complex, yet beautiful world. And when looked at even closer, many more strange features can be seen, such as Europa’s mysterious “freckles”. So what are these “freckles? And what is causing the chaotic fractures that weave across Europa’s frozen landscape? Join me as we take a look at real images of the solar system’s most promising place for life beyond Earth. We will take a look at what NASA’s Galileo spacecraft saw as it passed by. We will look at future missions that may make new and exciting discoveries about Europa, and we will peer below the ice as we take a look at the evidence that might reveal a massive secret ocean.
