Explore the water world of Europa, covered by a thick crust of ice. The color imagery from the Galileo satellite was combined with the imagery from Voyager 1 and 2 to create the spectacular color image mosaic in amazing detail. See evidence of icebergs frozen in ice channels, and huge and elaborate fracture systems due to upwelling caused by tidal friction. Holding more than double the amount of water in all of Earth’s oceans, many scientists believe that Europa may support life forms. Includes the latest labels and nomenclature updated in 2013!
