Astronomy Science ~ Moon ice of Jupiter, Europa has long been regarded as a potentially hospitable for life in the solar system. But what a human would feel if they land a ship on the surface of the ice Europa?

Living on the surface of Jupiter itself will be difficult, but perhaps not impossible. This giant gas planet has a small rocky core with a mass 10 times smaller than the Earth, but it is surrounded by a dense liquid hydrogen which extends up to 90 percent of the diameter of Jupiter. If you want to set foot in the core of Jupiter, "you will be crushed by the weight of liquid hydrogen in it," said Robert Pappalardo, planetary scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

Jupiter has more than 60 months, some of which are reasonable location for a permanent base. With low levels of radiation, stable geology and large amounts of water ice, Callisto may be ideal for residential Jovian moon, said JPL astrobiologist Steve Vance.

However, another moon of Jupiter - Europa - is estimated to have a giant water ocean beneath its icy surface, and is considered as the best place to find life in our solar system. Setting up research based on Europa will help scientists probe potentially habitable sea.

Currently, there is a very large hole in the knowledge of scientists on the surface of Europa, Pappalardo said. Eight spacecraft have visited the Jovian satellites, but only 10 to 15 percent of the surface in a portrait on a decent resolution.

Pappalardo and Vance is currently working on Clipper Europa mission concept, in which the spacecraft will perform a 45 flew near Europa, allowing scientists to get a picture Europa's surface is more detailed than before.

Photos from previous missions showed that Europa's surface is relatively smooth, lacking large craters and mountains because of the strength of convective sea ice continues to recycle the surface of Europa.

"If you look in any direction, you will see a small mountain, which only has a height of several meters," said Vance. You will also see a lot of gaps that cross each other on the surface. Crack and bulge is likely the result of tidal water below the surface caused by Jupiter, scientists say.

The best location to create a base in Europe will be on the side that faces Jupiter - Europa lethal radiation on the side facing away from Jupiter.

This base will provide a spectacular view of the sky, Jupiter will be visible almost 24 times larger in the sky than the month view of the Earth. "It will not be a boring place for afternoon tea," said Vance.

However, residents of the Europa will deal with the bitter cold ribs. The average temperature of about minus 260 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 160 degrees Celsius) near the equator and minus 370 F (minus 220 C) near the poles, Pappalardo said.

In addition to coming under attack from radiation and cold, some other dangers exist in Europa. As ice quake, which may feel like earthquakes, which could happen at any time. And you also definitely want to see the giant water bursts out from the surface of Europa. You also have the chance of a small meteor hit or particles of space even though it is a small chance.

Gravity Europa is only about 13 percent of the earth, so the atmosphere is almost non-existent. Therefore, like the Earth's moon Europa, do not have the weather, wind or the color of the sky. And walking in the Europa will feel like walking on the moon Earth.

For connoisseurs of the sky who lived in Europa, he might want to see the moons of Jupiter appeared, especially the moon giant like Ganymede (the largest moon in our solar system) that will appear in the sky once every two days (1 day Europan is 3.5 Earth days ), and will appear 1.5 times larger than our moon. Io - the third largest moon of Jupiter - will appear twice each day and will appear slightly larger than Ganymede.

If you want to send a message to Earth, at least you will take half an hour.
