Life on Europa

Clip: Season 3 Episode 330 | 5m 33s

The presence of ice and oxygen on Europa, one of Jupiter’s four moons, has lead scientists to think that the moon could harbor extraterrestrial life. Led by astrobiologist Kevin Hand at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab, scientists are using chilled vacuum chambers to simulate what life might be like on Europa with the hope that astronauts may one day travel there.
