Get an Update on Jupiter's Moon Europa Tomorrow

NASA has announced a media briefing tomorrow, November 16, on new science discoveries about Jupiter’s moon, Europa.

Europa is a fascinating celestial object. One of Jupiter’s “icy moons,” some scientists theorize that its icy surface hides a liquid ocean that might harbor life. The briefing is at 1:00 pm EST in the auditorium at NASA Headquarters and will be webcast on NASA TV. Participants are:

– Britney Schmidt, postdoctoral fellow, Institute for Geophysics, University of Texas at Austin

– Tori Hoehler, astrobiologist and senior research scientist, NASA’s Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.

– Louise Prockter, planetary scientist, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel, Md.

– Tom Wagner, program scientist, cryospheric sciences, Earth Science Division, NASA Headquarters
