Plumes of ocean spray are emanating from Jupiter's moon Europa

Science
May 14 (UPI) -- New research offers additional evidence of plumes emanating from Europa's subsurface ocean. Images captured by the Hubble Telescope have previously suggested the presence of ocean plumes ejected through tissues in the icy crust of Jupiter's moon. Some astronomers were skeptical of the Hubble results, however. The newest proof was discovered among data collected by the Galileo mission in 1997 during a Europa flyby. Scientists detailed the new proof in a paper published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy. Scientists with the Cassini mission were able to identify water plumes protruding from Saturn's moon Enceladus by measuring perturbations in the magnetic fields surrounding the satellite. Molecules and atoms ejected in a watery plume quickly become ionized as solar win...

Arsenal booked their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League after grinding out a 2-2 draw against a spirited CSKA Moscow at the VEB Arena. Danny Welbeck's accomplished finish in the 75th-minute and Aaron Ramsey's stoppage-time strike was enough to get the Gunners' over the line and secure a 6-3 aggregate win. Arsene Wenger's men were overwhelming favourites to go through after beating CSKA 4-1 in the first leg at the Emirates, but strikes from Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin put the Russian side 2-0 up and one goal away from going through. But Welbeck, who was the hero in the north London side's 3-2 win over Southampton last weekend, came up with a priceless goal that eased the nerves for Arsenal. And with their opponents on their knees, Arse...
