Life on Jupiter Moon Europa: There is good news for experts looking for life on other planets of the universe. Signs of life have been found on Jupiter i.e. Jupiter’s moon Europa. However, to find it, the robot will have to dig deeper than he thought. This matter has come to light in a new study. According to research, robotic landers entering Europa’s atmosphere will have to dig to a depth of at least 12 inches.
This result has come to light after the icy moon collided with ‘Impact Gardening’. Actually this process is the result of space radiation after colliding with molecules. Some of these molecules are brought to the surface while the rest are pushed downwards and mixed with the lower part of the surface. “If we are to find some ancient, chemical biosignatures, we have to go a little further down the impact gardening zone,” said Emily Costello, a Manoa Planetary Research Scientist at the University of Hawaii. Chemical biosignatures can be exposed to destructive radiation in a shallow area compared to the zone.
Was told to dig 8 inches earlier
In previous research, it was believed that if any lander digs up to 8 inches in the snow, then it can get evidence of biosignature. The idea of impact gardening on Europa or other airless planets in our solar system is not new. But from this research it can be known that what is the effect of radiation from space.

It is believed that there are huge seas on Jupiter’s moon Europa. Due to the ocean, the possibility of life on Jupiter’s moon is being strengthened. According to a previous study, the ocean on Europa is at least 10,000 years old. They can also come in contact with moon stones. If this happens, a large amount of chemical reaction can happen and perhaps we can get chemical signs of life. This study is published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
79 moons on Jupiter
There is not only one moon on Jupiter (Jupiter) like Earth, but there are full 79 moons on this planet. Of these, 26 have been found recently. Europa is the fourth largest moon of this planet, which also has an ocean. NASA’s Europa Clipper will go to Jupiter’s orbit for study. Also, it will look for areas of the moon from where signs of life are expected.
