Lake Vostok microbes found

May have implications for un-manned space probes for missions to Jupiter's and Saturn's Moons

There may be a sub-surface lake or ocean under kilometers of ice on Jupiter's second Moon, Europa. If Europa has a similar sub-surface source of heat - and there is strong evidence from the Galileo space probe that is may do - then just may-be -and it's a long shot but not completely inconceivable - that Europa may have the right conditions for microbes to live.

We will know more - perhaps - when the next NASA spacecraft to visit Jupiter arrives in 2017 - JUICE - JUpiter Icy Moon Explorer - is the next probe to investigate the weird and wonderful mini-worlds that orbit Jupiter.
