“Four hundred years ago, Galileo changed our sense of place in the Universe, when his discovery of four moons orbiting the planet Jupiter confirmed Copernicus’ radical idea — that the planets orbited the Sun.

“Galileo’s discovery suggested that the Earth — and the humans on it — were no longer the centre of the Solar System. In the 21st century, exploration of those icy moons may once again change our sense of how we fit into the Universe.”

BBC News explores the question “Could Life Exist On Jupiter Moon?”: Europa.
