Mission hopes to find fish on Jupiter’s moons
The European Space Agency has approved a mission to Jupiter’s moons to discover whether fish live under their icy surfaces.
The mission will send a five-tonne satellite to the solar system’s biggest planet to study three of its largest moons - Callisto, Europa and Ganymede.
These are of special interest because beneath their icy surface it is thought they might have vast oceans.
Scientists believe this makes them one of the most likely places in the solar system to harbour alien life, possibly even fish.

YES!!! As I mentioned in a previous post, Europa is one of the most promising places where we might find extraterrestrial life. As I also mentioned in said previous post, I can’t believe it’s taken anyone on Earth this long to arrange such a mission.
I’m EXTREMELY excited to see what they find. I think it will be a TREMENDOUS step forward for humanity—both scientifically and culturally—if we finally can confirm the existence of life somewhere other than our planet.
And if they find fish, or any other complex life forms….oh man, that will the greatest scientific discovery in HISTORY to that point. Guaranteed.
