Artist Statement

NASA's Europa Clipper mission to Jupiter's alien ocean moon is a spacecraft in development. Planned for launch in the 2020's it will orbit around Jupiter and make several fly-bys of the moon Europa. The main science goal is to examine the habitability of the subsurface ocean and possibilities for extraterrestrial life. Europa is considered one of the best candidates for finding life off Earth. I have been intrigued by astrobiology since I took a course in the subject at Lund University in 2003. Since then a lot has happened in the field, but it was the first time I heard about Europa and the possibility of a subsurface ocean that could harbour life. - Katarina Eriksson
