Radiation Maps of Jupiter’s Moon Europa: Key to Future Missions

Quote

New comprehensive mapping of the radiation pummeling Jupiter’s icy moon Europa reveals where scientists should look -- and how deep they’ll have to go -- when searching for signs of habitability and biosignatures.

Since NASA’s Galileo mission yielded strong evidence of a global ocean underneath Europa’s icy shell in the 1990s, scientists have considered that moon one of the most promising places in our solar system to look for ingredients to support life. There’s even evidence that the salty water sloshing around the moon’s interior makes its way to the surface.

Arthur C. Clarke called it, with the Odyssey trilogy (2001, 2010, 2061). Good books, if you like that style of 'hard' sci-fi.
I've been hoping that Europa would be vetted for life in my lifetime. I'm 42, so there's still time.
