Caption: Jupiter from Europa. Computer artwork of a view towards Jupiter and its moons, across the surface of Europa as it might have looked four billion years ago. Europa is the fourth largest of the moons that orbit Jupiter. It is believed to be composed of silicate rocks with a layer of water ice covering the entire surface. It may contain more water than all of Earth's oceans combined but its distance from its sun meant that there wasn't enough heat to prevent it from freezing over.
