Data from a NASA planetary mission have provided scientists evidence of what appears to be a body of liquid water, equal in volume to the North American Great Lakes, beneath the icy surface of Jupiter’s moon, Europa.

The water could represent a potential habitat for life, and many more such lakes might exist throughout the shallow regions of Europa’s shell, lead authorĀ Britney Schmidt [2], a postdoctoral fellow at The University of Texas at Austin’sĀ Institute for Geophysics [3], writes in the journal Nature.
