Considering that NASA has long been tagged as protector of UFOs or aliens for that matter, there has been a sudden turning of tables as they have recently revealed that they are convinced where aliens might be hiding. A significant number of experts believe that Jupiter's frozen moon, Europa, is more than just a totally inhospitable and barren as it may be the key to an amazing discovery. NASA experts have revealed that they are now convinced that there's a gigantic ocean locked beneath its frozen surface and is now said to be on the move to send a robotic craft in order to see if aliens are swimming in it.

Could Europa Be The Hideout Of Aliens?

In one of their statements reported by News Online, the space agency has revealed that there are three goals for the upcoming mission of searching for life possibilities. Authorities have said that the main goal of the mission is to search for evidence of life on Europa. On the other hand, the other goal is said to be focused on having the access to the potential habitability of Europa by directly analyzing material from the surface while the other one is to allegedly characterize the surface and subsurface of Europa in order to support future robotic exploration of Europa and its ocean.

As of the press time, NASA experts are said to be in the process of conceptualizing the sort of craft it could possibly use to find aliens in the extraterrestrial ocean. It was also found that the space agency will also create underwater robotic explorers that will apparently use artificial intelligence in searching for probable signs of life. In line with the said mission, Europa has been tagged as one of the most interesting and mysterious bodies in the solar system since its more likely to show traces of life as compared to the other heavenly bodies.

NASA's Mission To Europa

According To Tech Crunch, in NASA's list of instruments that are essential for the said mission, it was found that some of which don't technically exist but have analogs in systems already or about to be deployed. NASA adds that unlike Curiosity, as well as in other long-term surface explorers, the said lander to be used in the upcoming mission will probably last a few weeks before getting fried by the immense amount of radiation coming off Jupiter. Ultimately, other than Saturn's moon Enceladus, Europa is one of only two places where the ocean is understood to be in contact with a rocky seafloor which also makes scientists be more convinced than before that it is one of the highest priority targets in the search for present-day life beyond Earth.
