Jupiter's Moon Spewing Water Jets

New evidence has shown that Jupiter's icy moon Europa throws jets of water out into space.

Scientist first reported the behaviour in 2013 using the Hubble telescope but may have now made a follow-up sighting. It is significant because Europa is one of the most likely places to find microbial life beyond Earth because of its big ocean of liquid water. Fly through the jets with an instrumented spacecraft would be an effective way to test the possibility.
