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...
