NASA’s New Budget Includes Search for Alien Life on Europa

Published on 18 Jul 2019 / In News & Politics

Early Wednesday, Congress released a proposed 2016 budget that sets aside $19.3 billion for NASA—nearly $1 billion more than the Obama administration requested for the space agency. The funds, however, come with a caveat: NASA must put a lander on Europa, the formidable moon of Jupiter that might just be our best bet for finding alien life. Europa's sub-surface ocean is a good indicator that the moon can sustain life. NASA has been long planning to send a mission to examine Europa, but putting a lander on the moon is another thing altogether. Europa is bathed in radiation from Jupiter and is a chilling 210 degrees Celcius.
