Conditions could be right for plant life to grow and even flower on Jupiter's icy moon Europa a prominent physicist has claimed. Freeman Dyson believes future missions to Europa should keep an eye out for flowers there.

"Physicist and futurist Freeman Dyson says we should search for extraterrestrial life where it is easiest to find, even if the conditions there are not ideal for life as we know it. Specifically, he says spacecraft should look for flowers – similar to those found in Earth's Arctic regions – on icy moons and comets in the outer solar system."

Yak, yak, yak. Thats all they do. If discovering other life forms in the universe was so important why wait 17 years before sending a probe? Or is the simple answer because we're not that technologically advanced like we think we may be.

I wouldn't doubt it at all. If plant life and tubeworms can thrive at the deepest points of the earth at the mariana trench next to boiling thermal vents then im sure some crazy biology can spring up inside Europa.

they always say stuff about life on othermoons or planrets or whatever but they havent even stopped to think about going to our moon its tons closer then even mars but there have been no probes there that i know of and one visit by humans ( if it wasnt a govt conspiricy ) why shouldnt they take a closer look at what is right in front of them heaven knows how much thay will save or reasearch gained by doing it

For a flower to grow they need soil , water and oxygen...So does the scientist states that people can live in Europa?

I doubt it...If it was then with the discovery of Europa this would have turned up

THanks
