The search for alien life is not only limited to Mars but extends to other planet’s moon as well. Europa has a surface of smooth ice-rock crust which envelops a water ocean. This circumstance seems to make this Jupiter moon a possible place where life could exist such as aliens and microorganisms. NASA’s Galileo spacecraft has accomplished numerous flybys of Europa between 1995 and 2003. A number of findings from moon observations indicated confirmation of a liquid ocean underneath Jupiter...

Right now, it is thawing at a rate of 50% higher compared to small-scale levels and 30% beyond 20th-century levels. The ice sheets contain sufficient water to elevate global sea levels by 23 feet.
