Experts say Jupiter’s moon Europe is an extraterrestrial life that are octopus-like creatures
A British space scientist says it's & # 39; almost certain & # 39; Jupiter's moon Europe is the home of extraterrestrial life, but he thinks they are creatures like & # 39; octopuses & # 39 ;.
Monica Grady, who is a professor of Planetary and Space Sciences at Liverpool Hope University, suggests that the icy seas below the surface of Euorpa is a privileged place to find beings with intelligence similar to the marine animal.
Brady also believes that the caves and deep caves of Mars can also house life forms, as these areas provide relief from intense solar radiation.
"When it comes to life prospects beyond Earth, it is almost a certainty that there is life under the ice in Europe," he said.
"In another place, if there is going to be life on Mars, it will be below the surface of the planet."
There you are protected from solar radiation. And that means there is the possibility of ice remaining in the pores of the rocks, which could act as a source of water & # 39 ;.

"If there is something on Mars, it is likely to be very small: bacteria."
"But I think we have a better chance of having slightly higher lifestyles in Europe, perhaps similar to the intelligence of an octopus."
Although the idea of octopus-like creatures that live on Jupiter's moon may sound exaggerated to some, it was the plot in the 2013 film & # 39; Europe Report & # 39 ;.
Jupiter Europe's icy moon is slightly smaller than Earth's moon and orbits Jupiter every 3.5 days.
Brady also thinks that the caves and deep caves of Mars (in the photo) can also house life forms, as these areas provide relief from intense solar radiation.
It is believed to have an iron core, a rocky mantle and an ocean surface of salt water, such as Earth, with ice flowing beneath.
As for what is beyond the Milky Way, Grady said that the environmental conditions that led to life on Earth are & # 39; highly probable & # 39; to be replicated in other places.
"As far as we know, our solar system is not a particularly special planetary system, and we have not yet explored all the stars in the galaxy."
"But I think it is very likely that there is life elsewhere, and I think it is very likely that they are made of the same elements."
& # 39; Humans evolved from small hairy mammals that had the opportunity to evolve because dinosaurs were killed by an asteroid impact.
Monica Grady (pictured) is a professor of Planetary and Space Sciences at Liverpool Hope and says that when looking at the larger interplanetary image, Earth's own ecological situation is clearly focused.
& # 39; That probably won't happen on all the planets, but at least it's possible based solely on a statistical argument.
& # 39; No one knows if we can ever contact extraterrestrial life, simply because the distances are too large.
"And as for the so-called" extraterrestrial signals "received from space, I fear there has been nothing real or credible."
This year, three separate expeditions are heading to Mars to look for signs of life.
The ExoMars 2020, which is launched in July, is a collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian space agency, Roscosmos.
The new NASA rover will land at the Red Plant in February 2021.
And the Hope Mars Mission, funded by the United Arab Emirates, will be launched in the summer.
Meanwhile, Professor Grady says that when looking at the larger interplanetary image, Earth's own ecological situation is sharply focused.
She says: & # 39; We could be everything in the galaxy. And if it's just us, then we have a duty to protect the planet.
& # 39; I am pretty sure that we are all at our level of intelligence in this planetary system.
"And even if there are octopuses in Europe, that doesn't give us a reason to destroy our planet."
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT EUROPE AND WHY IS IT SO SPECIAL?
The icy moon of Jupiter Europe is slightly smaller than Earth's moon.
Europe orbits Jupiter every 3.5 days and is blocked by the tide, just like the Earth Moon, so that the same side of Europe faces Jupiter at all times.
It is believed to have an iron core, a rocky mantle and an ocean surface of salt water, such as Earth.
However, unlike Earth, this ocean is deep enough to cover the entire surface of Europe, and being far from the sun, the surface of the ocean is globally frozen.
Many experts believe that the hidden ocean surrounding Europe, warmed by the powerful tidal forces caused by Jupiter's gravity, may have favorable conditions for life.
NASA scientists are about to explore Europe, the oceanic moon of Jupiter, in search of signs of extraterrestrial life.
The researchers say that Europe is our best opportunity to find biological life in the solar system.
The space agency is preparing two probes, including one that will land on its surface, to explore the distant moon in detail over the next decade, the agency says.
