There is no alien life on Jupiter’s moon Europa, NASA just confirmed. Bad news for those who have been expecting something “new” for days. Just 2 days ago, NASA announced that the Hubble Space Telescope had captured “surprising evidence of activity” on the moon of Jupiter: Europa. The internet was since then filled with a whole host of conclusions and expectations.
Mainstream media, like Mail Online event added to the buzz by publishing an article full of hope and delusion: Is there alien life on Europa? Once again, it turned out to just be a big bad dream.
Some hours ago, NASA decided to smash the increasing hype with a tweet saying: “Monday, we’ll announce new findings from Jupiter’s moon Europa. Spoiler alert: NOT aliens.”
While we have not yet discovered life on Europa, the moon’s global underground ocean leads many experts to believe that the celestial body can host life. The 1,900-mile-wide moon is thought to hold two to three times as much water as all the Earth’s oceans. Europa’s ocean is believed to be salty, and warmed by powerful tidal forces generated by Jupiter’s gravity so that it remains unfrozen.
Aliens hunters, the search for alien life must go on.
