Caption: Exploring Europa's ocean. Artwork of two probes (centre) using lights to explore below the ice covering the ocean on Europa, a moon of Jupiter. It is thought that life may exist here, similar to the life discovered on Earth around underwater volcanic vents. The probes would have to melt their way through the thick ice. Volcanic vents are seen on the seabed, and a Europan lifeform is seen at lower left, swimming above the sea floor.
