Scientists are very interested in Europa because they think there are huge oceans of water beneath its surface. In fact, the Hubble Space Telescope has seen plumes of what is probably water being ejected into space, perhaps in a similar way to magma (lava) being ejected into the air on planet Earth from a volcano.
What is REALLY interesting, is that where there is water, there could also be life. If there is life on Europa, it won’t be in the form of aliens and spaceships, it will be in the form of microbes and tiny organisms as we have in our own oceans here on Earth.
