Jupiter’s moon Europa may be a habitable world. Galileo spacecraft data suggest that an ocean lurks beneath its frozen ice surface. A paucity of large craters argues for a young surface and recent geological activity, and magnetic measurements imply that a salty ocean persists today. Europa’s ocean and surface are inherently linked. This presentation will summarize both our state of knowledge about Europa and the science potential of NASA’s mission to explore Europa and investigate its habitability.
