Caption: Energy deposited on Europa. Computer illustration of Jupiter's moon Europa, mapping the relationship between the amount of energy deposited onto the moon from charged-particle bombardment and the chemical contents of ice deposits on the surface in five areas of the moon (labelled A through E). Image based on data from the near infrared spectrometer (NIMS) instrument on NASA's Galileo spacecraft, acquired from 1995-2003.
