Oceans help make life on Earth possible. So if there are oceans beyond Earth, do living things exist on those worlds? This is a question that NASA scientists are trying to answer. We know that water exists on moons, dwarf planets and even comets. Ice, water vapor in the atmosphere and oceans on other worlds offer clues in the quest to discover life beyond our home planet.
Join NASA engineer Todd Barber and astrobiologist Laurie Barge from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as they discuss a strong candidate for further study– Europa, one of Jupiter’s 53 moons.
Learn more about the search for water and possibly life on Europa at this family-friendly talk celebrating World Water Day!
