The Show Time/source India times


We all know that Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. Moreover, it is also the planet with 79 moons. The gargantuan planet is far from being a hospitable planet with its surface filled with gases and liquids. However, researchers believe that one of its moons, Europa could possess life.



Researchers have discovered that strong radiation from the large planet causes Europa's dark side to glow in the dark, making scientists believe that it could sustain simple life forms.


JPL's Murthy Gudipati, the lead author of the study, said “If Europa weren't under this radiation, it would look the way our moon looks to us -dark on the shadowed side. But because it's bombarded by the radiation from Jupiter, it glows in the dark.”
