ESA's mission to explore Jupiter and its icy moons called JUICE just passed the Key Decision Point C approval from NASA. This means the mission is now out of the design phase and will now move to the building stage.
NASA's mission to Jupiter's moon got its official name - Europa Clipper. The mission will investigate the habitability if the icy moon Europa.
According to scientists, a flyby mission to Europa could take samples of its massive watery plumes – even if they already stopped erupting – by probing its atmosphere.
Astronomers found evidence that shows there are plumes of water vapor from the surface of Europa. This can prove the existence of vast ocean deposit underneath the surface of the Jovian moon.
NASA will hold a press conference to announce the surprising findings of Jupiter's moon Europa, but the agency also stressed that it has nothing to do with aliens.
